English: Children's book illustration is a genre of art associated with children's literature, both children's picture books and books for older children. The earliest children's illustrated books date from the 16th century. Many highly regarded artists have worked in the field, including William Blake, with many children's book illustrators gaining critical recognition, such as Maurice Sendak. Many artists are also authors.
