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

This second edition of the landmark book Reading Images builds on its
reputation as the first systematic and comprehensive account of the grammar
of visual design. Drawing on an enormous range of examples from children's
drawings to textbook illustrations, photo-journalism to fine art, as well
as three-dimensional forms such as sculpture and toys, the authors examine
the ways in which images communicate meaning.

Features of this fully updated second edition include: new material on
moving images and on color, a discussion of how images and their uses have
changed through time, websites and web-based images, and ideas on the
future of visual communication.

Reading Images' focus on the structures or 'grammar' of visual design:
color, perspective, framing and composition, provides the reader with an
invaluable 'tool-kit' for reading images and makes it a must for anyone
interested in communication, the media and the arts.
