The Guardian has a new series of audio slideshows where “some of the most revered names in children’s illustrated books discuss their works.”  They are absolutely delightful.  There are two slideshows so far in the collection.  The first was with Eric Hill, celebrating Spot’s 30th birthday.  The second is with Raymond Briggs.

Both men speak of how they fell into illustrating children’s books and their subsequent careers.  I really enjoy the slideshow format with an audio interview accompanying it.  A marvelous way to spend some time with beloved characters and artists.
