In Pictures and In Words - Chapter 11: Layout and Design

For the last chapter in this book Katie Wood Ray talks about the layout and design of the pictures within the book as well as the illustration on the front and back covers.

I have enjoyed reading other bloggers who are part of this book study and their books selections.  A lot of you have mentioned some of the ones that I was thinking about when reading this chapter.  Check out our hostesses this week, KinderGals, to see all the other bloggers who have posted.  Thank you ladies for hosting this week!

Here is a book that would include more then one technique, What Do You Do With A Tail Like This? by Steve Jenkins & Robin Page

Some of the featured techniques would be:
Technique 40: Designing the Placement of Words and Pictures
Technique 41: Using Word Layout to Convey Meaning
Technique 44: Designing a Cover
Technique 50: Using Graphic Features to Show Information

This is a fun book to read with the students and can be a great learning tool.  What class doesn't like to play a guessing game and learn new facts about animals that they are not familiar with.

I have really enjoyed being part of this book study this summer.  I have learned a lot by reading the chapters but I have also learned from others in the blogging world and building up a wonderful library of information and books.  Thank you DeeDee Wills for setting this all up and your hard work in keeping a book log and guiding us.  I hope everyone has a great school year and thanks for sharing all your thoughts and ideas!
