Where There is No Artist
Development Drawings and How to Use Them
A simple to use catalogue, containing a wealth of illustrations, with a unique combination of written text and visual aids.Visual aids can provide information, provoke discussion and discovery, and make difficult ideas easy to understand. They can also improve the accessibility of a book or a poster simply by making it look more interesting. The book contains more than 1,200 drawings (over 700 new to this second edition) relating to a wide range of educational and health issues, along with advice on copying, enlarging, and otherwise changing the illustrations to make them appropriate to a particular situation, without using special equipment. There is also advice on pre-testing materials, to make sure their message will be understood by the intended audience.

'Petra Rohr-Rouendaal's drawing style is simple and expressive, relying on close and regular observation of the people and the objects that make up her world. It is an accessible style, well suited to the requirements of illustrations for development.'
