Children's Literature and the Avant-Garde is the first study that investigates the intricate influence of the avant-garde movements on children's literature in different countries from the beginning of the 20th century until the present. Examining a wide range of children's books from Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, the Netherlands, Russia, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and the USA, the individual chapters explore the historical as well as the cultural and political aspects that determine the exceptional character of avant-garde children's books. Drawing on studies in children's literature research, art history, and cultural studies, this volume provides comprehensive insights into the close relationships between avant-garde children's literature, images of childhood, and contemporary ideas of education. Addressing topics such as the impact of exhibitions, the significance of the Bauhaus, and the influence of poster art and graphic design, the book illustrates the broad range of issues associated with avant-garde children's books. More than 60 full-color illustrations demonstrate the impressive variety of design in avant-garde picturebooks and children's books.
