Not so with Big Book of Contemporary Illustration, which suffers from overshooting the range of topics to cover and very little sense of cohesion with images seemingly chosen and placed at random. Though some of the artists/work featured are brilliant, the overall quality of works included sags towards the not-very-good side. There is just far too much sketchy, "arty" nonsense that really doesn't help dissuade the popular idea that rary art is pretentious, art school garbage.

This book is high-quality and offers beautiful, colorful pictures of artwork that are very inspirational. The binding is well-made for a paperback of this size... a purchase you probably won't regret.

For the money this has to be a bargain book: over a thousand images from four hundred artists. The eight chapters: Built environment; Natural world; Comic, Graphic; Technical; Lifestyle; Travel; Imaginary cover, more or less, every sort of commercial illustration you'll find. Even more impressive is the range of work because each artist is sort of unique. In the Tech section you'll see the usual cut-away engines (page 232) to very casual but interesting renderings of a cell phone by Alexia Tucker (page 205).

The Graphic section has some stunning letterforms and complex graphics. Si Scott has created an amazing football player out of type (page 179) Thien Tran does an intriguing Psalm 23 with type and curlicues (page 171) Joseph Gonzalez, Robert Marras and Sorin Bechira (all on page 181) produced visual explosions that really grab the eye. The Imaginary section I thought was the weakest because, although most of the artists have mastered the use of paint or digital techniques, they don't all have the imagination to create fresh fantasy ideas. The same old monsters and space vehicles abound. This seems a genre where a new visual idea pops up and it gets copied until the next new thing.

The book's production is nicely thought out with many spreads that feature different artists interpretation of the same subject: churches (pages 44.45) dogs (page 102/103) or exercise machines (pages 238/239). Usefully the back pages have contact numbers and web pages for the artists but someone screwed up by not including a page number for each. The printing uses a 175 screen on a matt gloss which makes the book look pretty good, especially the square format.

Wow, I had no idea all these wonderful illustrators are with us. Illustration art has not disappeared with the advent of computers - it has only gotten better. I am so glad to see this type of book - well done Martin Dawber!
