There are some picture books whose illustrations are  so deep with detail or unique in style that I love to get lost in them. I’m thinking of titles like these:

If You Lived Here by Giles Laroche — collage, or paper bas relief as I think he refers to it
The Best Tailor in Pinbaue  by  Eymard Toledo — collage
A Lion in Paris by Beatrice Alemagna — charcoal, collage
The Usborne Lift the Flap Nativity by Felicity Brooks — clay (If there is a word for still claymation, I don’t know it)
Walk This World - by Jenny Broom and Lotta Nieminen
What Happens on Wednesdays — Emily Jenkins, illust. by Lauren Castillo
This Is My Dollhouse by Giselle Potter — acrylics, I believe

What  are some of your faves? I thought it would be fun to share.

Are We There Yet? by Alison Lester. It's in graphic novel format (but it's a picture book) and it's a family's trip around Australia.
Also, anything by David Wiesner!

I am captivated by Tasha Tudor, especially A Time to Keep and still have a fondness of the busyness and detail of Richard Scarry illustrations. My own children got as engrossed in What Do People Do All Day? and Cars and Trucks and Things That Go as I did!!

Every time I read David Litchfield's The Bear and the Piano to my daughter, we both are mesmerised by his illustrations. They're stunning!

So many great books to get lost in, but esp. Demi's books. Her style is so distinctive and I really love all those illuminated manuscripts.
One of my favorites using sticks and flowers and coffee grounds (for dirt): The Secret by Lindsay Barrett George.
My kids loved Richard Scarry.

Among my favorites are two books by Graeme Base:

Animalia (1987) - an "amazing alliterative alphabet book" and
The Eleventh Hour (1993) - readers can study his illustrations for clues to an exciting "whodunit"  :invisible
