50 Chapter 2 Picturebooks as works of art The very best picturebooks become timeless mini art galleries for the home – a coming together of concept, artwork, design and production that gives pleasure to, and stimulates the imagination of, both children and adults. Alternatively, mini theatrical productions may be a more appropriate analogy: it acknowledges the fusion of word and image that is key to the picturebook experience, while recognizing what Barbara Bader in American Picture Books: From Noah’s Ark to the Beast Within (Macmillan, 1976) calls ‘the drama of the turning page’.

So, although the major names in the industry continue to be published internationally, happily there are still regional delicacies to be discovered. Many smaller nations provide subsidies to artists and publishers to ensure the continued production of indigenous picturebooks to be read alongside imported and translated works by international names. Less happily, few of these books seem to find their way into other languages. Many new and emerging artists are represented in the chapters that follow.

Among them were Brian Wildsmith, Charles Keeping, Raymond Briggs and John Burningham. Each of them would go on to lengthy and productive careers and make major contributions to the picturebook genre. A key player in the careers of Wildsmith and Keeping was Mabel George, an editor at Oxford University Press. George was a passionate advocate of their work. She came from a family of printers and was knowledgeable about this aspect of publishing. She was determined to find printers who could do justice to the painterly approach of an artist such as Wildsmith.
