Summary
"...surveys charming and innovative art and design from the golden age of children's books. Since books entered the modern era of commercial packaging in the mid 1800s, children's books in particular have boasted visually enchanting covers designed to delight children and attract their parents' patronage. Featuring an amazing array of both humble classics and well-celebrated examples of the best graphics of their kind, [this book] includes the work of many marvelous illustrators, including such masters as H.A. Rey, Beatrix Potter, Walter Crane, and Maurice Sendak."--From cover [p. 4.]
