History of Illustration

Calvert, Sheena M. (2018) History of Illustration. In: History of Illustration. Bloomsbury/Fairchild (US/UK), USA and London, pp. 15-500. ISBN 978-1-6289-2753-5

History of Illustration provides a global overview of illustration practices from before the development of written language to the digital age. As the first textbook on the topic, it fills significant gaps in the history of art and visual culture, and in the education of illustrators. Created by a team of educators, scholars, curators, and professional illustrators, each chapter has been written, edited, and reviewed by numerous experts. History of Illustration is a survey that introduces the student to a variety of international illustration traditions, theories of the visual, and reference material that provide a foundation for further research and study. In addition to the chronologies of subjects and of general print history and artists, Theme Boxes in each chapter offer succinct presentations of printing technology, cultural phenomena, and critical theory relevant to illustration. My contribution included theme boxes on numerous subjects, including Derrida, Berger, Foucault, Kant, Sontag, and Marx.
