words & pictureswords & pictures
Words, and pictures: two little words that, together, mean a lot. A high-quality imprint for young children, words & pictures was started in 2012 at Frances Lincoln Children's Books, before the list became an imprint at Quarto International Co-Editions in 2014. The imprint encapsulates three main focuses: Imagination - because opening a book should also open a child's own imagination to possibilities;  Innovation - because children should be encouraged to create, not imitate; and Inspiration - because books should make children want more: more books, more information, more of life itself. Good books inspire. words & pictures represents a powerful and positive opportunity to open children's minds to a world of discovery.
