Children's Illustration

Children's magazines are a great place for unpublished illustrators to break into the market.  You might even work on a magazine project that develops into an idea for a children's book.  If your interest lies in children's magazine illustration -- these are a few online titles the Library offers.  For more information, you may wish to consult the Children's Writer's & Illustrator's Market below.  

The Library's collection of children's books are located on the 3rd Floor on the Michigan Avenue side near the windows.
