Illustration is experiencing a remarkable renaissance: the engagingly human, witty, and intricate work of contemporary illustrators is at the forefront of contemporary visual culture, viewed by audiences worldwide.

This outstanding and original survey brings together the talents of fifty leading illustrators from more than twenty countries. The book is divided into two interleaved strands. First, work by artists such as Julia Rothman, Whitney Sherman, and Mike Perry is presented along with an interview that explores their inspirations and motivations.

The second strand is a collaborative project with illustrators working in pairs to create original work on twenty-five themes suggested by the author ranging from "beauty" to "beast," from "speed" to "excess." Each of the collaborations is accompanied by a joint interview with the two illustrators reviewing the work created. As a result, half the work has been created exclusively for the book and never before seen.
