Abstract

The publishing industry is struggling and has been hard hit in recent years. When the entire publishing industry is declining, only children's books are growing steadily especially picture books. From the production side, in some cases, the picture book has two authors, which are writers and artists. In the process of creating picture books, the writer has his/her own picture in their head during the journey of creating the story, but the artists might have different ideas of the picture. Therefore the editor becomes the middle man to communicate with these two authors. The aim of this article attempts to explore how picture book artists collaborate with editors and writers and from the perspective of artists and to see what extent has the artist's creative autonomy been realized. This article involved Semi-structured In-depth interviews, and interviewing a publishing house that is willing to give the young artist the opportunity in Taiwan, and the interviewees comprised of three different roles which are artists, writers, and editors. This article may be of importance of explaining the dynamic relationship between picture book artists, writers, and editors, as well as providing the picture book publisher with a better understanding of the diverse characteristics of artists and different possibilities of collaboration
