Authors tell story of Canada's illustrated children's books

Writer Roy MacSkimming chronicled this country's publishing history in his much-lauded book The Perilous Trade (2003), but until now no in-depth study of children's publishing in Canada has existed. Gail Edwards and Judith Saltman explore this often-fascinating industry in a new book, Picturing Canada: A History of Canadian Children's Illustrated Books and Publishing.
