Over the past decade there has been a creative rebirth in the practice of illustration. Contemporary illustration has more applications, methodologies and fans than ever before. With modes of production ranging from the re-imagined traditions of drawing, painting and collage, to the wide range of computer-based applications, and a myriad of unique combinations of both hand and digital means, today's illustrators are breaking the mold in terms of production.
This book investigates these myriad ways of working and creating, by featuring work from a diverse range of more than 80 contemporary practitioners, some of whom have never before been featured in a book. Drawn from around the world, the work is accompanied by analysis and interviews with the illustrators. A collection that showcases new talent and focuses on current trends, this book offers a definitive guide to illustration in the new millennium.
