Illustration is everywhere; on clothing, in product and book design, fashion design, advertisements and even corporate identity. Pictures have the power to express what words cannot; they are personalized, immediate and powerful visual statements. As reflections of the times, illustrative styles range so greatly today that the only consistency comes from a general acceptance that 'anything goes'. Illusive, edited by Robert Klanten and Henrik Hellige is a collection of illustrations from around the world, and touches on stylistic approaches ranging from hand-cut paper images to polished vectored computer graphics, and everything in between. The book also features interviews with emerging illustrators, showcasing their technique, inspiration and business practices. Illusive is a thorough overview of some of the most beautiful and inspired illustration happening today.
