Course aim

To develop students’ theoretical and practical insight into the Picture Book as an art form which uses the interplay of verbal, visual and cinematic codes to communicate with readers.

Course content

Through close analysis of a large range of picture books, illustrated books and mixed-media texts, students develop knowledge of the way narratives are constructed through visual aspects of design and illustration and through the relationships between pictures and words. The issue of the implied reader of these texts is analysed. The students apply their knowledge to written analysis and production of their own storyboard.
