stories unfold? What happens from the first sketch to the finished
In this book, world-class picturebook makers generously

invaluable insights into their creation process. They reveal the complex and
time-consuming work that happens behind the scenes, in service of their stories

anyone interested in this dynamic art form. The editor of the book is Sam
