Gallery: The Art of the Picture Book Barcode 2022
Imagine if the great artists in history had to contend with the barcode. The Mona Lisa with a barcode slapped on the corner? No, I’d like to think that da Vinci would have done what some creative and pragmatic picture book makers do today: incorporate the code into the overall design and/or art of the piece.
With that in mind, I present to you The Art of the Picture Book Barcode 2022
And, as always, shout-out to author/illustrator Matthew Cordell, who gave me the idea for this post back in 2015.
