Prof Gary Crew: Critical Visual Literacy: The Creative Collaboration Between Author and Illustrator

Tuesday, 3 May, 2016

Teachers and librarians are invited to a day of Critical Visual Literacy with Professor Gary Grew.

Maurice Sendak (Lanes, 1984) says: ‘You must never illustrate exactly what is written. You must find a space so that pictures can do the work. Then you must let the words take over where words do it best.’ This presentation will explore the creative interplay between words and illustrations in a range of picture books for older readers.

Gary Crew is one of Australia’s most awarded authors of illustrated books having worked with Greg Rogers, Shaun Tan, Steven Woolman, Peter Gouldthorpe and Matt Ottley.
