Retro Picture Books

Ok, so yesterday I was talking about the Guardian’s picture book pics for Christmas and this morning I read this headline in NYT “Have Yourself a Retro Little Christmas” by Pamela Paul, the Children’s Book Editor I mentioned the other day.


The article, and chosen books, are all about reprints and the spirit of Christmas before commercial sales did a number on us.  So, I guess I’m the last to know that retro is in!  But, I still maintain there is a difference in European and North American sensibilities around picture books.  Care to weigh in?
