There are different styles for children’s illustration books. The first English book I received described the characteristics of a bunny…I remember distinctly one of the pages had a bunny’s tail made of a cotton ball, and the illustrations were of a consistent line quality. I think the styles of children’s book illustrations have varied throughout the decades, and it seems that more books are becoming more elaborate and detailed. From my search I came across Children’s Book Maker Jeremy Holmes. His inspiring illustrations are extremely detailed, conveying dimensionality and texture.
