Abstract

This essay examines three critically neglected picturebooks of Umberto Eco and Eugenio Carmi produced between the 60s and 90s. It adopts a semiotic approach to show how these books resist dominant ideologies, arguing that the interanimation of words and images promotes the ideals of disobedience, the collectivity, and active interpretive engagement.
