    This sounds like a great collaboration. I envy your opportunity. There are
    lots of books on the market, but my favorite is:
    Structure of the Visual Book By Keith A. Smith
    It was first published in 1984 and recently released as a third edition.

    The ideas are sophisticated but adaptable. It is very comprehensive and
    goes beyond just the physical structure of the book. It includes
    interesting ideas about use of the words with the images.

    I got it at Border's.

    Structure of the Visual Book By Keith A. Smith
    Book 95, Third Edition,

    published and distributed by keith a smith BOOKS
    22 Gayuga Street
    Rochester, NY 14620-2153

    Good luck with your class,
