Words about Pictures by Perry Nodelman

A pioneering study of a unique narrative form, Words about Pictures examines the special qualities of picture books--books intended to educate or tell stories to young children. Drawing from a number of aesthetic and literary sources, Perry Nodelman explores the ways in which the interplay of the verbal and visual aspects of picture books conveys more narrative information and stimulation than either medium could achieve alone. Moving from baby books, alphabet books, and word books to such well-known childrens picture books as Nancy Ekholm Burkerts Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Gerald McDermotts Arrow to the Sun, Maurice Sendaks Where the Wild Things Are, and Chris Van Allsburgs The Garden of Abdul Gasazi, Nodelman reveals how picture-book narrative is affected by the exclusively visual information of picture-book design and illustration as well as by the relationships between pictures and their complementary texts.

A pioneering study of a unique narrative form, Words about Pictures examines the special qualities of picture books--books intended to educate or tell stories to young children. Drawing from a number of aesthetic and literary sources, Perry Nodelman explores the ways in which the interplay of the verbal and visual aspects of picture books conveys more narrative information and stimulation than either medium could achieve alone. Moving from "baby" books, alphabet books, and word books to such well-known children's picture books as Nancy Ekholm Burkert's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs , Gerald McDermott's Arrow to the Sun , Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are , and Chris Van Allsburg's The Garden of Abdul Gasazi , Nodelman reveals how picture-book narrative is affected by the exclusively visual information of picture-book design and illustration as well as by the relationships between pictures and their complementary texts.

Please see earlier posts for part one and part two. On the other hand, though, it might seem equally foreign to Chinese readers. So I made an inquiry on Facebook to see if anyone could tell me if the words in this book were meant to be read from left to right and then from top to bottom, as in the English version. My thanks to Johnson Chiang, who lives in Taiwan and who told me that they are--and that Chinese translations from European languages are often printed in this way. For Chinese readers, the layout of the text would then convey its origin in a different language and culture even if what it says did not. It would be marked as being as exotic for a Chinese reader as the Chinese characters make it look to me—as, apparently, so is the text of the Chinese Words , which also appear to be moving from left to right and top to bottom in what is, after all, a book about books in what for Chinese readers is a foreign language.

A pioneering study of a unique narrative form, Words about Pictures examines the special qualities of picture books--books intended to educate or tell stories to young children. Drawing from a number of aesthetic and literary sources, Perry Nodelman explores the ways in which the interplay of the verbal and visual aspects of picture books conveys more narrative information and stimulation than either medium could achieve alone.

An exceptionally rich book, Words About Pictures asks you to think and read and look and look again. It will open your eyes. Thoughtful and thought provoking, Nodelman's discussion ranges over topics such as the ways pictures communicate information, style as meaning, the contextual meaning of visual objects, irony, and rhythms of narrative. Nodelman brings the disciplines of psychology and art history, of semiotics and reader-response theory, as well as insights from an eclectic cadre of other disciplines to this book.
