Publisher Comments:

Everyone knows that a picture tells a thousand words. But what about the elements that make up a picture? Using the tale of Little Red Riding Hood as an example, Molly Bang uses boldly graphic artwork to explain how images—and their individual components—work to tell a story that engages the emotions: Why are diagonals dramatic? Why are curves calming? Why does red feel hot and blue feel cold? First published in 1991, Picture This fans will welcome the new edition's striking redesign and introduce its insights to many other artists and art appreciators alike.

I LOVED this book. We read it in Ms. Darb's art class. She is the coolest and introduced us to the symbol art used in this amazing book. I loved it so much I'm going to the bookstore right now to buy it! I totally recommend you reading it.
