This unit was made in conjunction with a visit from
the author/illustrator, Brain Selznik. The most
obvious connection probably would have been to teach
mask-making or stamp design. But this was not for
I tied in history of the development of writing/art
from the cave paintings and Diptychs. Had to go ahead
and throw in some Frida Kahlo too.
He is also illustrating a series that uses
foreshortening on the cover of each book - a device
used to emphasise the key element of each book.
