Picture this : how pictures work

Author: Molly Bang
Publisher: New York : SeaStar Books, ©2000.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Everyone knows that a picture tells a thousand words. But what about the elements that make up a picture? Using the tale of Little Red Riding Hood as an example, Molly Bang uses boldly graphic artwork to explain how images -- and their individual components -- work to tell a story that engages the emotions: Why are diagonals dramatic? Why are curves calming? Why does red feel hot and blue feel cold?
