The 23 Best Picture Books OfBy Lorna Bradbury. Alongside the acres of Wimpy Kid books that were bought for children last Christmas was a surprise bestseller: an illustrated atlas. Maps by Alexsandra Mizielinska and Daniel Mizielinski, published by a newcomer, Big Picture Press, was a charmingly quirky set of drawings of the world, laced with facts and figures, which seemed to take the growing market for artful, lavishly produced picture books — a flourishing antidote to ebooks — to a new level. Not surprisingly, perhaps, this year sees various books vying for the same ground. It tells the story of life in terms of evolutionary history from invertebrates to mammals, and has a neat trick, presenting itself not as a straightforward history but as a museum, with cabinets of illustrated, labelled exhibits and, at the end of each section, a bell jar showing species in their natural habitat. Though it has some obvious crossover with Maps, it is structured more like an oversized travel guide than an atlas proper, and throws up some interesting journeys, such as on the Moscow Metro or to the Dead Sea.
