The second book in the successful "Basics Illustration" series looks to the history of illustration for inspiration from medieval manuscripts and hieroglyphics to the contemporary. It also examines the production of artefacts, for example artists books, graphic novels, posters, and handmade typography, stencils, graffiti, and fonts designed by illustrators.
