Example of text and image. This is a billboard advert for Nelson Mandela’s book ‘Conversations With Myself’. In this case the text is used to create the image, which is a portrait of Mandela. The individual words used to build up this portrait have been taken from the book. I think they used this as a way of advertising his book as everybody will recognise the face and the words are representational of his life and what he stands for. Strength is added to the advert because it is spoken in his own voice, his words have created the image, in the same way his words have created him.
