Ana Benaroya Illustration is experiencing a remarkable renaissance. Young illustrators are no longer regarded as the poor relations of artists, photographers and designers, and their work – engagingly human, delightfully witty and intricately hand-rendered – is at the forefront of visual culture. This outstanding global survey brings together the dazzling talent of 50 leading illustrators from over 20 countries, among them Julia Rothman, Whitney Sherman and Mike Perry, and also provides them with the opportunity to indulge in a brilliant creative experiment. The book is curated in two interleaved strands: in the first, each illustrator showcases their own work and is interviewed by the author to shine a light onto what inspires and motivates them. The second strand is a collaborative project, with illustrators working in pairs to create original work to one of 25 briefs from the author across themes ranging from ‘beauty’ to ‘beast’ and ‘speed’ to ‘excess’. Each collaboration is accompanied by a joint interview with the two illustrators.
