This article investigates how reality is depicted through written language and visual resources in educational literature in Norway in two periods of time since World War II. The idea is, through this study, to point out some features of such reality-pretentions, but also to call attention to some historical tendencies. The text corpus consists of educational literature, i.e. factual prose made to inform a broader public. Eight texts are collected from two different disciplines, medicine and religion, in two periods; they are all multimodal, and the main focus of the study is the pictures with captions. In addition to this primary research question, it is my ambition to develop some concepts and an analytical procedure for reality-pretention in specific written text/picture-relations.
