Illustration – Children’s Books

We recently received a donation of over 30 beautiful, though decrepit, children’s books from the early 20th century. The haul gave the existing Illustration – Children’s Books category a hefty influx of content and prompted us to divide the subject chronologically as follows:

Illustration – Children’s Books – Pre – 1920’s

Illustration – Children’s Books – 1920-1929

Illustration – Children’s Books – 1930-1939

Illustration – Children’s Books – 1940-1979

Illustration – Children’s Books – 1980-1989

Illustration – Children’s Books – 1990-Present
