understanding illustration

The good people of Bloomsbury books have gifted me an inspection copy of 'Understanding Illustration' by Derek Brazell and Jo Davies - the authors have form, being behind both 'Becoming a Successful Illustrator' and the wonderful 'Making Great Illustration'. As with the authors' other output, we can't recommend this book enough. It's a real piece of eye candy, which let's admit it, we all like but more importantly, it's crammed with insight and understanding as well as work not from 'trend' based illustrators but from successful current practitioners and real legends or the art such as Victor Ambrus and Ronald Searle - why their like aren't in every other illustration book produced, we'll never know.

Grillust's recommendation - buy it.
