The indispensible Swedish publisher Arvinius presents the third volume of its series on Swedish Illustration in an imaginatively designed and copiously illustrated format. Both an inspiration book and a directory of top artists, the publication collects work from 123 of the country’s best illustrators and agencies. A broad selection of commissioned work is included—children’s books, book covers, fashion illustrations, technical drawings and text book illustration—mixed with the illustrators’ own pet projects. Also featured are texts on the art and commercial demands of illustration today and on the nominees and final winner of the Swedish Illustration Award 2011. An in-depth collection showcasing the fertile Swedish graphic art scene, this is a treasure trove of ideas for artists, editors and educators.
