- Wordless picture book is a literary genre which narrates and expresses ideas of stories by completely relying on visual images, and thus plays an important role in children’s education at primary stage. With an important time-based feature, image narration of wordless picture books applies montage technique, opens a space in time, connects a large amount of frozen single picture fragments into a continuous narration integrity, promotes the process of narration through corresponding plot design and displacement of time and space, and delays readers’ reading time with picture and detail skills, so that wordless picture books have stories full of tension and unique artistic charm. This paper discusses about image narration features and artistry of wordless picture books with the example of Arrival.
