Investigates the relationship of words and pictures in how we communicate. This book shows how words and pictures can combine to make powerful statements.
Bob Gill's third book for images is about the relationship of words and pictures in how we communicate. Writers and poets have been creating works with both literary and visual interest since ancient times. What fascinates Bob Gill about this genre is that it has the potential to be the simplest and most original way of communicating. He asks, 'Why show the name of something and then have to make it look interesting by adding an image, when the two functions can be combined?'. This book shows how words and pictures, in the skilled hands and minds of a master graphic designer such as Bob Gill, can combine to make powerful statements. Designer/illustrator/copywriter/educator Bob Gill's impressive career spans several decades. His love of and affinity for graphic design is contagious and he generously shares his passion through education. His other books for images include “Graphic Design as a Second Language” (ISBN: 9781920744397) and “Illustration” (ISBN: 9781920744731).
