Book to be Illustrated

The Art of Science will be published with illustrations. Looked like we’re done with revisions and the book will be formatted soon. Eight illustrations will be dispersed throughout the book.

I’m excited to see what the illustrations will look like. It takes time to find an illustrator. They will be pen and ink. There are often many options, but this isn’t my area of expertise. It differs from other types of books, in that there are illustrations (different from an adult novel) but that they aren’t showing a story to a child who can’t read yet (picture book). It’s interesting to straddle the line between those two, and it opens my eyes to how much I don’t know about children’s books and their illustrations.

More research, and probably more posts ahead.

    It makes me think of the line drawings at the beginning of each chapter in all the Harry Potter books. Sort of a hint as to what happens in that chapter. Can’t wait for yours, how exciting! 🙂

    That’s exciting. I have to do a paper on an illustrator that uses pen&ink, along with doing my own drawings.

    I look forward to seeing your book. 🙂
