A Life in Illustration

The Most Famous Illustrators and Their Work

How does it feel to be an illustrator and in what fields can one work? Today’s most successful illustrators present their work and talk about their experiences in one of life’s most beautiful careers.

Illustration is no longer just illustration. Today, illustrators write and create children's picture books and graphic novels; they structure information through infographics; they design logos, fonts, and other typographical applications; they contribute to the editorial design of newspapers and magazines; they apply their talents to advertising and fashion; and they develop and produce their own products on the basis of their creations. Despite the fact that all of these activities are based on illustration, each of them has its own rules and its own specialists, tasks, and job descriptions to go along with them.

Against this background, A Life in Illustration gives an insider‘s look at the diverse facets of this creative medium through extensive portraits of today‘s leading illustrators. Perceptive texts and images describe the work and day-to-day activities of outstanding talents including Christoph Niemann, Andrea Ventura, Jan Van Der Veken, Peter Grundy, Jessica Hische, and the New York Times’s Jonathan Corum.
