Finding Books with Large Illustrations

When you search the LIBRARY CATALOG to find books, look for the following:

  • col. ill. [color illustrations]
  • juvenile [children's books are likely to have big illustrations]
  • pictorial work [means the book is mostly pictures]
  • the height of the book in cm [a large book is likely to have large illustrations]
