A beautiful book for artists, illustrators, publishers, and educators

Illustrators interested in working with children's books often don't know how to start. They wonder how to go about getting involved, where the ideas come from, how to illustrate a narrative, and how to get published. This book answers all these questions and more. With practical tips and ideas throughout, it explains and follows the journey from first idea to final completed book. It is filled with illustrations that show how these images are made, and offers a rare chance to see the roughs, visuals, and ideas sheets from a variety of childen's illustrators. Exercises support the ideas discussed and suggest ways of developing them.
