    A History of Children’s Books in 100 Books

    While the modern children’s book, intended specifically for the enjoyment of children, did not emerge until 18th-century Europe, its roots span centuries and continents: children’s literature began with fables, myths and folk tales from the oral tradition. Illustrations have often been key components of children’s stories, visualizing fantastic scenes and making them instantly recognizable. Original artwork from iconic illustrators such as Arthur Rackham, Walter Crane and John Tenniel is beautifully reproduced throughout.
