Using illustrations to inspire (Part1)

  • How can illustrations affect the writing process?
  • How can illustrations affect the reading experience?

Some authors only have illustrations on their book covers, others have them throughout their books.

Think of your favourite authors and what makes them appeal to you. Which use illustrations and which don't? How does this influence you?

Paul Stewart (author) works very closely with Chris Riddell (illustrator), so closely that all their books created are a result of a creative collaboration where each inspris the other to come up with the writing / illustrations throughout the development of each book.
