Illustrations by Susan Swan

First Release:

December 2013

“Most people think volcanoes are either sound asleep or blowing their tops off in fiery, ash-spewing catastrophes.” But they’re not just destructive. “Much more often, volcanoes are creative.” Volcano vocabulary. Selected bibliography. Further reading. Full-color illustrations were created by manipulating found objects, hand-painted papers, and scans of objects and textures in Adobe Photoshop; adding digital paintings; and then collaging.
