#NoWords – a celebration of wordless books

More than 200 wordless picture books for children are now displayed at The Story of Books in Hay-on-Wye, ready for the launch of our #NoWords project next month. Collection owner, Clare Walters, was in Hay last weekend to talk about the development of wordless picture books for children over the last fifty years.
