Children’s Literature (and Children’s Art)

April 4, 2013

A friend recently sent me this link to the text of “children’s” author Phillip Pullman 1996 Carnegie Medal acceptance speech.

Pullman compares “adult” literature to “children’s” literature.  His comments may apply to the adult art world, as well, and help explain why I am frequently identified as a children’s book illustrator, despite not having set out to create children’s book illustrations.
