One of the most exciting areas of research in children's literature is the study of visual texts as literature. In one sense, all printed texts (except that produced in Braille - and at some levels even that) are visual: editors and publishers make decisions about visual impact that relate to typeface, size of font, shape of book, arrangement of title page and so on. Poetry is arranged visually; in fact, in most cases we can guess both a book's genre and who a book is meant for, simply by looking at its cover.
