Weighing in at a mere 96 pages and looking like something you’d pull from your child’s bookcase, Picture This is deceivingly simple, yet absolutely brilliant. Molly Bang takes this analysis one step further by delving into the psychological implications and impact of these compositional choices, even going so far as to include the insights of renowned art psychologists. In one such passage, art psychologist Rudolf Arnheim writes

Everyone knows that a picture tells a thousand words. But what about the elements that make up a picture? Using the tale of Little Red Riding Hood as an example, Molly Bang uses boldly graphic artwork to explain how images--and their individual components--work to tell a story that engages the emotions: Why are diagonals dramatic? Why are curves calming? Why does red feel hot and blue feel cold? First published in 1991, Picture This fans will welcome the new edition's striking redesign and introduce its insights to many other artists and art appreciators alike.

Low score for major format issues in the electronic edition

I saw this issue mentioned in a number of reviews of the past edition, but hoped it would be resolved in the re-release. Alas, it is not. If you enjoy reading a coded text in which almost all characters that aren't standard letters are some other thing, this book is for you. I'm sure it provides additional brain exercise while you absorb the images. Incidentally, the images in the Kindle edition are also appearing somewhat off from their descriptive notes, which is also a bit confusing.

I adapted and figured it out after a while, but wish I hadn't needed to.

Here's hoping the publisher will notice this and fix it and retroactively fix everyone's e-copies. That would be great. The book itself explores useful concepts of composition in a relatable way.

I am constantly searching for better ways to understand photographic composition, not only so that I can take better photographs in the field/in camera but so that I can make good editing decisions in the digital darkroom. So when a photographer recommended this book I jumped on the opportunity and I'm very happy that I did. Molly Bang's "Picture This: How Pictures Work" is a fantastic resource for any creative person trying to get a better understanding of visual dynamics.

The frist thing I did when I got the book was to simply look at the pictures -- even without reading the text the graphics tell the story of how to create a more visually dynamic image and story. So if you are interested in understanding how lines create tension, the impact of negative space, tonal relations, and getting a better understanding of color and emotional relationships/reaction I heartily recommend this simple little book. If you want to get a better understanding of what "draws your eye" or to get a handle on "seeing" rather than simply "looking" then check out this book.

If you have any interest in learning how using lines and shapes can create a story, buy this book... like now. It's one of the few books required for grad school that I used and am happy to keep on my shelf.

I've never encountered such a precise simple book on composition. When I was in art school, we experimented with composition with our teacher saying "just draw shapes". It was very frustrating because I didn't know why certain shapes worked and others didn't, and so I never got anywhere. For years I struggled with composition and knew something had to be done about it. After reading this book, I finally understand composition! When you first open it it looks so simple you get worried you already know everything in it, but Molly explains everything so perfectly, showing you both examples of what works and what doesn't, and most importantly, why. There are also exercises at the very end of the book to put your knowledge to the test. This book should be mandatory in any art major!

I required this book in my university-level art courses: every person should own and read it!

I loved it. Ms. Bang provides simple visual examples to her narrative explaining how and why we are impacted by pictures. I even did the exercises which are well worth the time and effort. I nice reflective reprieve from my normal 'to do' list and they inspired greater curiosity.

I'm a photographer and I'm looking to improve my ability to frame and compose images. I didn't think this book would be exactly relevant to photography, but I decided to give it a try, based on the glowing reviews. This book offers simple but profound insights on the psychology that drives human reaction to pictures, and I'm eager to apply the knowledge I've gained to my photography.
This book opened my eyes to a new way of looking, not only at illustrations, but the bigger world. Although I suppose these principles of graphic design should be intuitive, Bang's book makes it crystal clear. It prompts be to now consider the emotional impact colors, shapes, and placement can elicit.
