Children's Picture Books : The Art of Visual Storytelling, Paperback

Children's Picture Books : The Art of Visual Storytelling Paperback


Children's picturebooks are the very first books we encounter, and they form an important, constantly evolving and dynamic sector of the publishing industry.

But what does it take to create a successful picture book for children?

In seven chapters, this book covers the key stages of conceiving a narrative, creating a visual language and developing storyboards and design of a picturebook.

There are interviews with leading children's picturebook illustrators, as well as case studies of their work.

The picturebooks and artists featured hail from Australia, Belgium, Cuba, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Taiwan, the UK and the USA.

In this publication, Martin Salisbury and Morag Styles introduce us to the world of children's picturebooks, providing a solid background to the industry before going on to explore the key concepts and practices that have gone into the creation of picturebooks.
