By Parka HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 4 Feb. 2013
Format: Hardcover
Length: 1:22 Mins
Little Big Books is a wonderful collection of work from 100 illustrators and creators of children picture books. That's 240 pages in this big beautiful hardcover book.

The illustrations are fun, playful and diverse. There's an appealing childlike simplicity to them. Each illustrator has a profile and there are five interviews talking about the psychology of children picture books, awards, and advice on publishing rights and licensing.

It's a great book for children book illustrators and those looking for inspiration on drawing for children.

(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

If you (like me) think this book will tell you how to illustrate for children's picture books and give you tips and tricks on your journey, you will be disappointed. But on the other hand it has a really lovely and great collection of illustrators who illustrate for children's picture books, and they have become very inspirational to me! So i love the book anyway, there are many lovely drawings in this little big book!

I bought this book for some inspirational research I am doing as a graphic designer and I must say that it doesn't disappoint. It is a great work and showcases some really brilliant illustration. Robert Klanten's books are always put together with so much love - I will be enjoying this for many years to come. I highly recommend this for graphic designers and illustrators who want to see what's going on out there. Robert Klanten has done a great job at pulling it all together for you!

Lovely book, format is 2 pages per illustrator with a small blurb about each one and a selection of their work. Very broad range of work included and very inspiring to look through.

Fantastic large book with a great range of children's book illustrations showing various styles of illustrations using the mediums of printing to papercut to drawings and digital. As an illustration student I found this book as a great reference for visual research in projects. Filled to the brim with colour illustrations it definitely won't disappoint!

A book full of weird and wonderful images, perhaps erring on the side of weird!... but lovely nonetheless. I recommend it.
