Telling Stories: The Illustrated Book

This exhibition presented illustrations from the Department of Creative Writing at USC and the practices used in writing the illustrated book.

Exhibitors included Shaun Tan in association with Dr Gary Crew, Dr Ross Watkins, Dean Jacobs and Paul O’Sullivan. Once the domain of children’s books, illustrated books are now produced for young adults and older readers.

The exhibition explored the aspects and writing techniques contributing to the illustrated book and its place in modern literature.
