Illustrators' Envelopes

Illustrators' Envelopes
It's a bit of a tradition in the children's book industry that illustrators often send in post to their publishers with a little something drawn on the front of the envelopes they use. I first became aware of this tradition when I worked at Scholastic and Alison Green, who's published Axel Scheffler's and Julia Donnaldson's picture books over the years, showed me her extensive Axel Scheffler envelope collection. I was indeed wide-eyed with envy. Here are a few envelopes from other illustrators.
