Children Book Week Posters
with Larry Rakow
Larry Rakow is the owner of Wonderland Books, dealing in old, rare and collectible children’s books since 1990. In addition to Newbery and Caldecott winners, pop-up and movable books, Little Golden Books, and assorted titles from the Golden Age of children’s literature, Larry’s inventory also includes a wide variety of kid-lit-related ephemera, including posters. Children’s Book Week posters started to appear exactly 100 years ago, in 1919, and have featured the artwork of a veritable Who’s Who of children’s illustrators ever since, beginning with Jessie Willcox Smith and ending, this year, with an 12-panel poster featuring the best of contemporary illustration. Join Larry for a history of Children’s Book Week posters and a look at the artist who created them over the past century.
