The authoritative book on the origins, history, and influence of illustration. This book will educate and foster mutual respect between designers, fine artists, faculty colleagues, and of course, the illustration students enrolled in contemporary Bachelors of Fine Arts programs. Bravo! -- David Brinley, University of Delaware, USA
Highly detailed and thorough. I especially like that the history of illustration of non-western cultures aren't ignored. . .Covers all of the major illustrators and movements. -- Deanna Staffo, Maryland Institute College of Art, USA
This book is one of the most thorough histories of illustration that I have seen and it would serve graphic design students well. Its content on non-western cultures far exceeds any comprehensive illustration or design history text available at this time. -- Amanda Horton, University of Central Oklahoma, USA
