Beauty + Brains: The Best Children’s Books from the New York Book Show

Part I: Hardcover Picture Books and Pop-up Books
Just this week, the Book Industry Guild of New York hosted their annual book show. This show is a visual arts-lovers paradise, as the books selected were judged on beauty of design and quality of printing. These selections are a feast for the eyes as well as the soul. The show features notes about the books’ typefaces, paper weights, and special printing effects. No e-books to be experienced at this show. It’s truly a celebration of the printer’s art.

This is the 25th annual show the guild has hosted. Since 1993, the group has donated all the books from the show to the Literacy Assistance Center of New York.
