Présentation de l'éditeur

Drawings and sequential images are an integral part of human expression dating back at least as far as cave paintings, and in contemporary society appear most prominently in comics. Despite this fundamental part of human identity, little work has explored the comprehension and cognitive underpinnings of visual narratives—until now.

This work presents a provocative theory: that drawings and sequential images are structured the same as language. Building on contemporary theories from linguistics and cognitive psychology, it argues that comics are written in a visual language of sequential images that combines with text. Like spoken and signed languages, visual narratives use a lexicon of systematic patterns stored in memory, strategies for combining these patterns into meaningful units, and a hierarchic grammar governing the combination of sequential images into coherent expressions. Filled with examples and illustrations, this book details each of these levels of structure, explains how cross-cultural differences arise in diverse visual languages of the world, and describes what the newest neuroscience research reveals about the brain’s comprehension of visual narratives. From this emerges the foundation for a new line of research within the linguistic and cognitive sciences, raising intriguing questions about the connections between language and the diversity of humans’ expressive behaviours in the mind and brain.

I lucked into seeing Professor Cohn speak on Visual Language in the past, so my interest in his work had already been piqued prior to this book's release. What he presents in this book is a much more comprehensive deep-dive into topics that he touches on in presentations.

Many longtime comics fans might be familiar with Will Eisner's "Comics and Sequential Art" or Scott McCloud's "Understanding Comics." Cohn's book exists in that realm of discussion regarding the comics medium, but it isn't at all a retread of those earlier works. What he presents is nothing short of a groundbreaking new way to think about how comics are both created and read.

I look forward to continued developments in this field, in which Cohn is clearly the trailblazer.

When I started drawing again about a year ago (after a 20-year break), I noticed an immediate effect on my children, ages 5 and 7 at the time. Every time I tried something new, they would take inspiration from it and create their own versions. This started me thinking about imitation as a natural way to learn to draw. The three of us formed a small drawing community -- we drew together, talked about drawing, invited other people to draw with us, and started to seek out examples of other people drawing. Together we examined finished products in the form of picture books, comics, and animation. A year later, my children are known at school as being "talented" in drawing. I knew that this was about exposure, imitation, and practice, but I didn't have a theory to explain why. Now, thanks to Neil Cohn, I do. Comics are important in this book, but I do not see it as being "about comics." It is about rethinking our concept of "language arts" and seeing that maximizing our human potential requires cultural transmission of verbal, bodily, and visual languages.
