Children's Picturebooks: The Art of Visual Storytelling

A good article from Maria Popova at the Atlantic discussing Martin Salisbury's new book, Children's Picturebooks: The Art of Visual Storytelling

I found his Illustrating Children's Books: Creating Pictures for Publication very interesting and valuable, and have added this new book to my wish list. 

In Children's Picturebooks: The Art of Visual Storytelling, illustrator Martin Salisbury and children's literature scholar Morag Styles trace the fascinating evolution of the picturebook as a storytelling medium and a cultural agent, and peer into the future to see where the medium might be going next, with case studies of seminal works, a survey of artistic techniques, and peeks inside the sketchbooks and creative process of prominent illustrators adding dimension to this thoughtful and visually engrossing journey.
