A second look at picture book dummies « Drawn! The Illustration and Cartooning Blog


I think that if the dummy remains as it is, it will mislead aspiring picture book creators into thinking they have, as Staake writes, “15 spreads… (and) a single page finale,” when they are more likely to have 14 spreads, a single page beginning and a single page finale. I’d hate to see a bunch of Drawn readers (or Bob Staake fans) show up at a publisher or agent only to be told that they’ll have to lay the whole thing out again.
