Children’s Book Illustration John Ericson (Salisbury) Thursday 09 November 2017


As adults we carry in our heads huge numbers of images from childhood, and some of those most deeply etched come from illustrations in books that we read as children. Images of ‘Tigger’ and ‘Toad’ or even ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’ will probably remain with us for ever! In this lecture we will not only consider a range of book illustrations but also the intriguing lives of famous illustrators such as Beatrix Potter and Howard Pyle.  In addition we will explore how illustrations contribute to the development of understanding and how the interaction of image and narrative creates such powerful memories.
