Artist books for kids curated by Childish Books

Childish Books (Cb) is a project that seeks to amplify, aggregate, and archive unique artist books and zine projects which could be enjoyed by a “child audience,” however defined. They believe that these books represent voices and issues often left out of mainstream publishing, and therefore feel it is important that they reach young hands. Through interviews, reviews, publications, and exhibitions, Childish Books hopes to generate dialogue and community around these great works. They love projects that are informed by children and/or childhood culture, made collaboratively with children, or create open dialogue with children from a place of value and respect. Our hope is to prioritize children within the zine and artbook world.
