Perhaps this is the reason that modern designers – Rand, Munari, Lionni etc. – always seem to end their career ls designing children’s books. The children’s book is the purest to venue of the designers/authors because the content is negligible and the evocative potentials is unlimited. 

The choice of projects in each designer’s oeuvre lays out a map of interests and proclivities. And the way those projects are parsed out, disassembled, reorganized and rendered reveals a philosophy, an aesthetic position, an argument and a critique.
