Oliver Jeffers is a New York based artist who’s done a few really beautiful picture books, the lastest is called “Stuck“.
From the editorial submissions:
Artist: Massimiliano di Lauro is an italian illustrator who just published his first book with OQO Editora, “Mi primer viaje“. His work is very painterly, scratchy and textured. Here he shows us how to paint Pinocchio with a woodblock.
Blueberry Express is a collection of images from New York based, Japanese artist Misaki Kawai. The book features Kawai’s larger scale paintings, sculptural installations and snapshots of her working in her New York studio over the past two years. Read more about her, or view more images of the book.

Daniel is currently finishing his MFA in illustration and will be using the profits from the book sales to pay off his student loans. (Smart, huh?) Check out a preview of the whole book here.

Amanda tips us off in her Twitter feed about Camilla Engman’s latest book from Uppercase Gallery:
THE SUITCASE SERIES
This series presents in glorious detail the lives of artists and designers from around the world. Small and intimate, each book contains a special treasure: in this edition we have included a glassine envelope of postcards with which you can create a Camilla-inspired collage. You’ll also find a booklet
of the adventures of Morran, the little Swedish dog with a big imagination. Each book in The Suitcase Series is a precious souvenir of a creative journey shared between the artist and you, the reader.
