Arcturus Children’s Classics
This series of Arcturus children’s classics is a collection of affordable gift quality children’s literature that was released by Arcturus between 2018-2019. The books are presented in a sturdy slipcase and feature numerous bright illustrations throughout clearly laid-out text, frequently newly commissioned for the publications by Colombian artist Luisa Uribe.
The slipcases are about 7.5″ x 9″, the book bindings are sewn, and are rugged enough to stand up to handling by young children. The slipcase covers are illustrated with various elements from the stories, and the book covers feature a related but slightly different cover design. The size and design is similar to the slipcased classics series by the same publisher aimed more at an adult audience.
