Visual Narratives in Picture Book Design:
A Comparison of Print and Digital Formats
Junko Yokota, Ph.D.
This study is part of a larger content analysis research project on book design and visual narratives in children’s picture books, in print and digital formats. Work on print picture book design and its impact on the reader’s aesthetic experience and understanding is well documented. Yet in today’s age of digital materials, the research on how design and visuals communicate with readers in digital formats is at a quite early stage. In what ways will classic picture book design theory influence digital book design, and in what ways will digital formats impact how readers experience stories? A first phase of addressing that question is discussed in this presentation: beginning with a foundation of deeply understanding visual narratives in picture books and distinguishing commonalities and differences in books from various parts of the world.
