The Illustrator. 100 Best from around the World

Available

Description

For the last ten years, Steven Heller and Julius Wiedemann have traced the latest developments in illustration across the globe-and for all those who thought digital heralded the end of an era, they're here to set the record straight.

There were extraordinary eras before mass media changed our viewing habits, back in the day when illustration was the most primary means of illuminating the word on paper, to today when we get our words and images on screens as small as a watch face. And in this environment, today's designers and artists are holding their own brilliantly. Illustration is more free and varied than ever, and it is ubiquitous in all kinds of media from paper to screen, books, packages, clothing, cars, and restaurants.

This book celebrates the sheer quality, diversity, intensity, comedy, vivacity, and exceptionality of the work being created by illustrators right now. From veteran artists like Brad Holland, whose oblique and metaphorical paintings for the New York Times' op-ed section revolutionized illustrative content in the 1970s, to up-and-coming stars like Robin Eisenberg, her pastel-skinned alien belles cruising in spaceships on indie-rock album covers, the 100 artists in this collection are just the tip of the proverbial iceberg, but they represent a compelling snapshot of the styles, techniques, and use of color by artists across the world. We dare you to pick your favorites.

Includes:

an introduction and foreword by editors Julius Wiedemann and Steven Heller

600 pages of brilliantly reproduced works

a biography for each artist detailing their background, philosophy, motivations, and contact details

an index of illustration agencies
