End Pages

End pages are one of my favorite parts of creating a book. I think of them as a punctuation mark. They bracket a story, much like the frame of a painting. They aren't exactly part of the story, but can help you read it. I have often designed an image that shows the cast of the book. Sometimes it's just motif, but I always look forward to creating them. I create them last and it becomes a visual farewell.

This is my first visit to your site, prompted by my admiration of the endpaper from "The Little Dump Truck", and here it is, latest post and all! I would buy a large print of it for my kids' room, if I could.

Bob - these are awesome! I bought "The Little Dump Truck" for our family friend who is obsessed with dump trucks (he's 3). I love, love love the endpapers for that book. We spent a lot of time making up stories about the people in the various cars. Your work is so inspiring!

Hi, I love your blog and illustrations! My daughter however is obsessed with an illustration you did for "our White House"-- the illustration titled "1600 Pennsylvania Ave. - who is in the White House". I'm wondering if it is possible to get a print or poster of it that I could donate to her classroom. To see her pouring over an illustration about presidents (she is 4!) because it is so captivating and well...cool...is great. Thank you for the good work!
