Synopsis

Cover to Cover - How a Book is Made by Rob Lewis

How are books made? Twice winner of the Tir na n-Og prize, Rob Lewis has been asked so many times how books are made that he's written and illustrated a light-hearted picture book, Cover to Cover, in explanation. It features Rob's trademark sheep as both author and editor.

Reviews

Have you ever wondered about books and how they appear on the shelves? Enjoy the journey as cartoon sheep, photographs and line drawings take you through the publishing process from authors initial idea to the shop, classroom or library.

Humorous illustrations, comical commentary and asides accompany the graphics to lighten highly informative text which might have been plodding in different hands. Technical aspects are dealt with in detail with labelled examples and occasional vocabulary highlighted by the use of capitals. As the content reflects the very first sentence - A book starts with a story educators of older primary school pupils may regret the lack of a glossary or index which undermines immediacy as an information or reference book.
