Randolph Caldecott: The Man Who Could Not Stop Drawing

Born in 1846, Randolph Caldecott always loved to draw, and he began selling drawings to newspapers while in his teens. The newspaper business was rapidly expanding, and Caldecott's art found a ready audience. But he is best known for a series of children's books he illustrated using a mixture of color paintings and simple line drawings. The books were hugely innovative in style, layout, and focus--and they would inspire countless artists and illustrators. Fifty years after Caldecott's death, the American Library Association established a new honor for excellence in children's book illustration. They called it the Caldecott Medal.
