The Man Who Could Not Stop Drawing
Leonard S Marcus, a distinguished historian of children's literature, presents a short biography of Randolph Caldecott (1846–1886), illustrated with a great collection of his work, including many previously unpublished drawings. From doodling in the margins of his schoolbooks to his tragically early death, the book traces the career of the 'man who invented the modern picture book' and whose dynamic visual storytelling was to influence later illustrators, notably Beatrix Potter and Maurice Sendak. Slightly off-mint.
