Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The covers of children's books dazzle us with art, enchantment, and boldly creative designs. This is especially true of books created during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, what could be called the golden age of children's book publishing. During this time, advances in printing and more eclectic tastes made for the most colorful and daring books of all. Now this treasury of children's book covers from the late 1800s to the mid-1900s reviews the full parade of this era's marvelous cover art, from brilliantly illustrated fairy tales to early editions of such favorites as Curious George Takes a Job, The Little Prince, Charlotte's Web, Babar's Picnic, Hansel and Gretel, Cinderella, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, and other classics. The masterful work of Walter Crane, Maurice Sendak, Theodore Geisel (Dr. Seuss), Beatrix Potter, and many others is well represented, and captions offer notes and details about each book, artist, and era. Sure to spark fond memories for those who loved books when they were kids, From Mother Goose to Dr. Seuss is also made to order for bibliophiles, artists, illustrators, and designers.
