After an illustrated introduction in which she reflects on the artist's own children as a subject in painting, Juliet Heslewood presents a collection of 40 portraits, arranged chronologically from Fralippo Lippi's Madonna and Child with Two Angels (c.1465) - it may be that the smiling angel is Lippi's son - to Sam and the Perfect World (2005) by the American artist David Lenz. Each picture is reproduced along with a commentary and the story behind the portrait.
