MORE WORDS ABOUT PICTURES: CURRENT RESEARCH ON PICTUREBOOKS AND VISUAL/VERBAL TEXTS FOR YOUNG PEOPLE. Perry Nodelman et al. Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, New York, 2016. An Ashgate Book. 228 pp. ISBN 9781138656642 In English.
Publisher's description: This volume represents the current state of research on picture books and other adjacent hybrid forms of visual/verbal texts such as comics, graphic novels, and book apps, with a particular focus on texts produced for and about young people. When Perry Nodelman's Words about Pictures: the Narrative Art of Children's Picture Books was published almost three decades ago, it was greeted as an important contribution to studies in children's picture books and illustration internationally; and based substantially on it, Nodelman has recently been named the 2015 recipient of the International Grimm Award for children's literature criticism. In the years since Words About Pictures appeared, scholars have built on Nodelman's groundbreaking text and have developed a range of other approaches, both to picturebooks and to newer forms of visual/verbal texts that have entered the marketplace and become popular with young people. The essays in this book offer 'more words' about established and emerging forms of picture books, providing an overview of the current state of studies in visual/verbal texts and gathering in one place the work being produced at various locations and across disciplines.
