Through the year, we invite guest curators – international picturebook and illustration specialists – to independently highlight their favourite picturebooks showcased on the dPICTUS platform. The ongoing 100 Outstanding Picturebooks showcase features the titles which have been highlighted by the most guest curators, and includes an eclectic mix of new-and-soon-to-be-released picturebooks, as well as classic backlist titles. We’re currently unable to present a physical showcase at book fairs, but we hope you’ll enjoy viewing the 100 Outstanding Picturebooks on dPICTUS instead. Members can view these titles in full; non-members can see two spreads from each title.
