TAKING NOTICE OF TODAY’S MOST EXCITING IMAGE MAKERS
Story by D’Loraine Miranda
Graphic designer and executive design editor of TASCHEN Publishing, Julius Wiedemann, takes readers on a journey through the diverse world of illustration in Illustration Now! 4. The compilation (the fourth in TASCHEN’s wildly popular series), includes the work of over 150 artists from around the world, and is a must read for the creatively savvy.
Included is a foreword by Wiedemann himself, and essays by Steven Heller (former Art Director of The New York Times) and award-winning graphic designer Bruno Porto. Illustration Now! 4 also includes information on each artist featured, providing a brief biography, the artist’s tools they favour, clients they have catered to, and a list of their selected exhibitions.
This stimulating collection showcases work from the famous, such as Brazilian illustrator Adhemas Batista (known for his vibrant Havianas sandals advertisements) to more unfamiliar names such as the U.K.’s Philip Dennis and Anne Cresci of France.
Art, fashion and culture junkies alike are bound to lose track of time when flipping through this mesmerizing title.
Illustration Now! 4 is available at TASCHEN.com, as well as at book retailers across Canada.
