In the poorest countries there is a shortage of visual material to help development, and those aids which exist are often old, shoddy, and boringg. Moreover visual literacy itself tends to be low in rural areas precisely because people are unused to looking at, and interpreting, pictures. Intermediate Technology has produced a book which, the publishers hope, will plug the gap and help stimulate the production of visual materials at local level. 'The Copy Book' aims to encourage local workers to make their own drawings by copying and adapting the book's illustrations for their own use. The contributing artists have agreed that the drawings in this book should be free of copyright restrictions. This means that any development worker is free to exploit the book, either as instant artwork or as source material. The publishers emphasize that - because many of the illustrations have been produced in the UK - they are not specifically relevant to, or correct in, any particular country. They urge fieldworkers to adapt carefully and sensitively for local customs and situations. 'The Copy Book.
