Horn Book Magazine Cover Gallery

Randolph Caldecott was The Horn Book Magazine‘s first — and for decades only — cover artist. Then in 1985 another picture book master, Maurice Sendak, took over the task for a few issues, leading the way for a whole new crop of talented contributors. Much of their work is on view below in our electronic gallery of magazine covers from recent years.
