Bottoms, bodies and blood

Hamdi, Rachel; Newbery, Elizabeth

Interpretation Journal;Jul2004, Vol. 9 Issue 2, p8
Children's publications, mostly in the form of guide books and trails, have become a grossing element in plans for interpretation initiatives. Children want none of that: they want funny illustrations, minimal text and as many disgusting details about lavatories, bodies and blood as possible. Working with heritage and environmental organizations helped the authors to have access to expertise, the latest research and first class images. The design of a book for children has to take account of all these interests and needs.
