“See, see! What shall I see?” Illustrators of Traditional Nursery Rhymes

Presiding Officer: 
Kent Hooper, University of Puget Sound

What accounts for the differing ways illustrators “see” the same rhyme? Have ways of seeing changed over time? And how do illustrations impact a reader’s own perception of meaning?
