Item description for Illustration Play by Victionary...

Illustration Play explores new trends in handcrafted illustration, each of which lends a welcome departure from digitally generated graphics. In a bold departure from the pixel based aesthetic, Illustration Play focuses rather on the return to experimental and unique techniques such as paper cutting, stitching, knitting, needlework, origami, patchwork and more. Thirty artists from around the globe present their distinct yet diverse perspectives on their signature styles, and the myriad skills they bring to each project, and share their resounding successes. Contributors include Catalina Estrada, Genevieve Dionne, Melvin Galapon, Caroline Hwang, Steven Harrington, Johanna Lundberg, Miles Donovan, Stephanie Dotson, Peter Callesen, AJ Fosik, Richard Saja, Ian Wright and many more. Through interviews and photos of the studios where they find their inspiration, the artists and designers takes you on a voyeuristic journey through their personal realms and share their work from vision and imagination to creation.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!

Reviews - What do customers think about Illustration Play?

A Creative High Point  Feb 2, 2008
I found Illustration Play very inspiring. While the hand of the artist is clearly evident in the included work, it brings a warm handmade aesthetic that is not just another gimmicky contrived DIY style, but the real deal. Good solid work throughout.
Too Much Embroidery  Feb 1, 2008
A playful sticker-bound cover gets this book off to a good start. The first artist uses fabric and stitching to concoct her illustrations - something I hadn't really seen before...that is until about 200 pages and a dozen other artists doing the same, later.

Overall, this book was a welcome departure from digital-centric art. While there are various methods and media featured, this book makes it seem like every other "unique" artist has jumped on the fabric and embroidery bandwagon. They all just start to feel derivative of eachother when lumped in a book together. But maybe embroidery just isn't my cup of tea.

Some truly innovative/interesting artists mixed with a bunch that just didn't do it for me.
