Couples Who Collaborate: Picture Book Authors Miranda and Baptiste Paul

Jennifer Gibson

Abstract


As in many fields, the myth of the lone creative genius simply does not hold true for those creating children’s books.

While in traditional publishing, the writer and the illustrator of picture books are normally not in contact, both must work collaboratively with their editors and art directors on book projects and often rely on feedback from critique groups of their peers to enrich their creative work.

Yet what happens when your partner in life is also a writer or illustrator? Children and Libraries introduces a new series, Couples Who Collaborate, looking at the dynamic duos in children’s publishing. We begin our series with Wisconsin-based husband-and-wife team Baptiste and Miranda Paul.
