Writing this post breaks my heart a little as I lost my very favourite book [Illusive Vol2] in a move a few years ago, such a treasure, such a tome of beautiful illustration. The wound has still not healed. So with a bittersweet joy, I reveal to you the third installment of Illusive.
Illusive. Contemporary Illustration Part 3 follows in the footsteps of the bestselling ‘Illusive’ and ‘Illusive 2’ books and continues to document the flourishing discipline of contemporary illustration. This definitive reference and veritable guide to the best in illustration today, presents an unparalleled collection of work showcasing nearly 200 world-class illustrators and new emerging talents scouted from around the globe.
The book addresses the inexhaustible possibilities of styles and techniques that are practiced today through the broad range of examples featured that span from fashion illustration to the current flirtation with figurative painting, material application as well as deconstruction and collage.
