Title: Reading Images - The Grammar of Visual Design
Written By: Gunther Kress
Theo van Leeuwen
Description:

Reading Images provides a systematic and comprehensive account of the grammar of visual design. Drawing on an enormous range of examples--children's drawings, textbook illustrations, photojournalism, advertising images and fine art, as well as three-dimensional forms--the authors demonstrate the differences and the similarities between the grammar of language and that of visual culture. As we move from a culture dominated by language to one in which visual literacy becomes increasingly important, this book provides an invaluable ``tool-kit'' for reading images.
