Every Picture Tells a Story: Visual Literacy in Picture Books

James Mayhew (Illustrator)

Pictures: another way of telling a story, and an important way of helping children discover the magic of words! In this talk, James Mayhew explores illustration traditions and techniques, why generic "styles" of illustration lack emotional depth and how to use illustrated texts as a way to aid interpretation of the written word.
