Randolph Caldecott is best referred to as the namesake of the award that honors picture book illustrations, and on this inventive biography, leading children’s literature scholar Leonard Marcus examines the man in the back of the medal. In an era when the steam engine fueled an industrial revolution and train commute exploded people’s experience of space and time, Caldecott used to be inspired by his surroundings to capture action, movement, and speed in a way that had never before been seen in children’s picture books. Thoroughly researched and featuring extensive archival material and a treasure trove of up to now unpublished drawings, including some from Caldecott’s very last sketchbook, Leonard Marcus’s luminous biography shows why Caldecott used to be indeed the father of the brand new picture book and how his influence lives on within the books we adore as of late.
