Sayaka Ishii & Natsumi Fujita (Eds.)
The charm of the monochrome illustration is its simplicity. A Journey Through Monochrome Illustration is a fanciful trip around the world with 69 international artists who create illustration-like images in monochrome media. Their tools— noted at the start of each chapter in limited English—vary from the tried-and-true graphite pencil to well-known digital programs. Fascinating and well curated, the book features drawings for commercial and advertising use as well as playful drawings exploring the brilliant wanderings of creative minds. By eliminating color it allows the viewer to use his or her creative juices to wander along the lines—a touch, a rhythm or a line seems to appear more clearly. This book will inspire illustrators who want to enrich their range of expression while offering the general reader the pleasure of experiencing the simple beauty of the black-and- white drawing.
