Children's book illustration RR


This is a round robin to send and receive postcards with children’s book illustrations.

While many things change in modern times, the popularity of children’s picture books have survived the generations, admired by young and old alike. Each of us remembers favourite images from our own childhood reading. Let’s take a look at our favourite children’s books and the illustrators who brought them to life.

Many thanks to @Jamie1972 and @Levirin who previously hosted the RR!


(Please, read before joining even if you’ve participated before)

  • post here in the thread to join and say what group you’d like to be in; don’t join via u2u to the host, please;

  • send your address via u2u to the host if you’re new here; please, u2u to the host if any address changes;

  • provide the link to your collection if any; group members are expected to look through their group fellows’ collections to avoid duplicates;

  • a first-time participant may join only two groups; when other group members receive all the cards from him he is more than welcome to join more;

  • a group consists of 4 members so every member sends 3 cards and receives 3 cards in return;

  • there is no limit for group members per country;

  • new group ideas are always welcome; just u2u the host;

  • when a group is full, the host sends u2u with the addresses, links & deadlines;

  • send your cards written and stamped; you may request to receive cards written/unwritten in an envelope in a special group (just say to the host if you need one);

  • write your nickname, group number and the RR name on your cards; it would be great if you could provide any information about the book or illustrator related;

  • send your cards within two weeks after the group launch (check the deadline in the host’s message);

  • report your sent and received cards by posting here in the thread;

  • send only new, store-bought cards; no free/ad/handmade/self-printed/folded cards, please (unless a group member wishes them);

  • resend your card if it’s not received within two months, please. If the receiver has been inactive for one month or more, you don’t have to resend the card;

  • feel free to contact the host by u2u if any suggestions or concerns.

Let your collection grow larger and your smile happier with every card received from the Children’s book illustration RR. Thank you for being a part of our stunning illustrated world, Ira @forget_me_not
