Summary
Twenty-three illustrators of children's literature discuss their lives, inspirations, and creative backgrounds and present photographs of themselves and their work spaces along with examples of their illustrations
Summary
Do you ever think about the artists who illustrated your favorite picture books? If you're curious about how people become professional artists and illustrators, how they think about their artwork, what inspires them, or where they work, you'll love this book. It presents letters from 23 famous artists (from Maurice Sendak and Quentin Blake to Ashley Bryan, Jane Dyer, Eric Carle, and many more) written to kids who like to paint or draw, along with samples of the artists' work, a self-portrait of each artist, and photos of the artists in their studios. -- Description by Ellen Foreman
