Our Children’s Illustration Tutor would like to recommend the book below to all of our students….

In seven chapters, this book covers the key stages of conceiving a narrative, creating a visual language and developing storyboards and design of a picturebook.

The picturebooks and artists featured hail from Australia, Belgium, Cuba, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Taiwan, the UK and the USA.

‘In more than one sense a splendid example of word and picture collaboration, this reader-friendly volume with its rich international material will be indispensable for a novice as well as expert, for writer and artist, teacher and student, word-lover and image-lover, for anyone interested on how picturebooks are produced, marketed and consumed in the contemporary multimedial, multicultural world..’ 
Maria Nikolajeva, Professor of Education at Cambridge University

‘This beautifully produced book gives a great insight into the art of the picture book. Its international out-look is especially welcome’

  1. Hi,
    I will be a new 2015 international student from Australia, and i was just wondering as part of the “Illustrating Children’s Books Diploma” course, where i would be able to purchase the book Maggy Roberts has suggested for students ;
    ‘Children’s Picturebooks; The art of storytelling’

    Unfortunately an online bookstore here in Australia only caters Australia wide :/
    i would appreciate it greatly due to being a passionate graduate of a bachelor of illustration course over the last 4 years

    Thanks Kind Regards
    Cynthia Brooke Di Mineo
