Favourite Author Illustrator Websites

Saturday, 28 May 2016

Books and illustrations are not the only delight we can enjoy when it comes to children's book creators. If you're anything like me, you'll love perusing their gorgeous websites, too. I love them for their design, simplicity, whimsy and sheer cleverness. Ever-aspiring to create a 'better' website, these serve as enormous inspiration for me ... and if you're just starting out, these will make a wonderful reference point for your own site.

I know there are many, many I've left out and I'll potentially add to this as I find more. Let me know if you know of a spectacular website--leave a comment below.

In no particular order ...

Have looked through a lot of these. Fab pages. Thanks for the inspiration I will now start doing my next illo.

Diana Toledano said...

Wow, that's a lot of websites! I know and love some of them, but I have never heard of others. I'll take a look. Thanks!

Zoe Collins said...

Wowzers, what a resource! I am in the process of figuring out exactly WHAT my website is going to be and how I want it to look. There's so much drab web design out there which I am hoping to avoid. Thanks for this!

Tania McCartney said...

There's nothing like a gorgeous site, Zoe--and it's so doable. Good luck! Make sure you let me know when it's up and running.
