about this item

Written by an international team of illustration historians, practitioners, and educators, The History of Illustration covers image-making and print history from around the world, spanning from the prehistoric to the contemporary. This book contextualizes the many types of illustrations within social, cultural, and technical parameters, presenting information in a flowing chronology. The text is complemented with Key Theme Boxes covering vital issues and arguments in the field and Tech-Boxes which expand upon technical innovations mentioned in the narrative.

This essential guide is the first serious and comprehensive history of illustration as its own discipline. Readers will gain an ability to critically analyze images from technical, cultural, and ideological standpoints in order to arrive at an appreciation of both historical and contemporary illustration.
