Illustration : A Theoretical and Contextual Perspective (Paperback) (Alan Male)
About this item
Illustration practice is not judged purely by visual literacy and technical qualities, but is a discipline that is firmly established as one that engenders the best intellectual engagement with subject matter, problem solving and visual communication. Illustration can also be applied to anything and is not driven purely by fad or trend. The global community is its potential audience.
Richly illustrated with over 300 contemporary examples, this book examines the breadth and use of illustration. There is a particular focus on theory, research, conceptual processing, visual language analysis and the contexts of illustration practice. It also introduces the concept of the illustrator as a specialist or authority on a particular subject or as an originator of fiction and/or non-fiction material.
