Pictures vs Words
We all know that "a picture is worth a thousand words." Words and pictures are two different ways of telling stories and expressing our ideas and feelings about a subject. One appeals visually, the other linguistically, to different areas of our brains to get their message across. However when words and pictures are used effectively together -- pairing a compelling image with a clever title or interesting backstory -- their impact can be truly inspiring.

In this thought-provoking book we explore:
  • The history of the pictures-versus-words debate
  • Why some visual artists dislike image titles
  • How titles and other text can enhance images
  • Tips for creating effective image titles and captions
  • The power of words placed inside pictures
Pictures vs Words is richly illustrated with photographs, each accompanied by a caption that explains the rationale for the picture's title, sometimes even offering alternative titles for readers to choose from.
