Abstract [en]

This paper is part of my postdoctoral research project called “Play, parody, intertextuality and interaction: postmodern Flemish picture books as semiotic playgrounds”. The paper deals with the influence of new media on the design of ‘older media’, more specific contemporary picture books for children. It unites insights from postmodern picture book research with studies on hypertexts and new media. The so called ‘loop books’ by Flemish picture book maker Tom Schamp are used as a case study to look at how postmodern picture book design can be used as a resource for cognitive and interactive learning. Also a comparison is made between the use of spatial and temporal reading paths in the loop books and in hypertexts and new media.
