Children's Book Illustration

I have always loved children's books. As a child I remember very clearly stating to my primary school teacher that I wanted to be an 'Author & Illustrator' when I grew up. I was very fortunate that my artistic mum loved children's books, therefore she was always encouraging my siblings & I to be creative. Now, having graduated from a BA in Graphics & Illustration, I have started curating my own book collection as it is still an aspiration of mine to be involved in children's books. So I thought I would photograph them for a post to see how my collection is going. There are many more illustrators that I love whose books I haven't acquired YET, however here are the ones that I have in my collection so far...
