I wanted to share all the nice books I regularly notice and have collected over the years. Please email me if you have any suggestions or books you want to share.
The blog covers design and fine art books, comics, and children’s books. It’s the latter section I really enjoy, though the emphasis of the blog naturally is on the illustrations and not the text.
I’ve learned about new children’s magazines, such as Anorak, “The Happy Mag for Kids”, and newfangled colouring books*, both from the UK; read about new books and more about old favorites (we have an embarrassingly large collection of the “double” Dandelion Books, which I’ve found at garage sales and the Goodwill shop). And then there are the old treasures by favorite artists, titles I’ve never even heard of before now.
Via Bloesem Kids, another new to me blog, all about design for children (books, clothes, toys, more) from Irene Hoofs in Kuala Lumpur.
*The coloring books don’t seem to be available in North America, at least not yet, so if you don’t have obliging friends or relatives across the pond, you can try the Book Depository and its free worldwide shipping.
