New Search Feature: Search for Books by Illustrator

Wizard of Oz popup
We used the new illustrator feature in our book search to turn up this popup of the Wizard of Oz done by famed illustrator/book artist Robert Sabuda.

We’re happy to announce a new search feature on and the ability to specify book illustrator as a criteria when searching for books!

As far as we know, this makes Biblio the only major rare & out-of-print book marketplace to offer this capability.  Most importantly, though, we hope this tool proves useful in helping everyone find the books they are looking for, especially those looking for a specific edition of a book with a particular illustrator’s work in mind.

    This is the best innovation yet!!! I collect by illustrator and have had to use many creative measures to find my favorites.

    Thank you for this excellent new feature!

      Hi John,

      Do you mind pointing us to where that is? We couldn’t find it on their advanced search form.

    Why are there no images available for books found using the illustrator search? Seems a tad pointless ….
