Picture books

I think imagery within books is something that has been neglected from much of adult literature for too long. Graphic novels still don't carry the same esteem that standard novels do which is unfortunate. But it's a new animal, relatively speaking, so we'll give it a chance. It really must step even further away from the comic book mold to gain the sort of widespread recognition that it deserves.

But what do you think? Should most novels be illustrated to some degree or should they remain strictly text as they have been? Send us your thoughts.
