The art of the picture book
Where do ideas for picture books come from?
How are words brought to life through illustration?
In picture books words and illustrations work together to lead our imaginations into the story and beyond. Take a closer look at the key illustrations displayed in A Sausage Went for a Walk One Day. Marvel at the creativity and technique involved in creating this uniquely portable art form.
A Sausage Went for a Walk One Day celebrates the artistry and diversity of Western Australian picture books published by Fremantle Press. In this exhibition of original illustrations, discover how ideas for picture books emerge, and explore how they are brought to life through sketches, storyboards, working notes and the finished published book. On display from 1 October - 31 December 2016. For opening hours go to: www.slwa.wa.gov.au
