Synopsis

Bob Gill Illustration by Bob Gill

In this book, simply but eloquently entitled Illustration, Bob Gill features many of his favorite works, completed between 1952 and 2004. The power of the illustration is brilliantly demonstrated in another compact volume from New York designer Bob Gill. In this book, simply but eloquently entitled 'Illustration', he features many of his favourite works, completed between 1952 and 2004. Subjects for his often whimsical, but always potent illustrations range from people and things to the more fanciful characters that populate several of the children's books he has written and illustrated. Some drawings have been at the centre of successful advertising campaigns, others are less overt but particularly powerful political statements. A short, witty description places each image into the context of its time and purpose. SELLING POINTS: - Companion book to Graphic Design as a Second Language, also by Bob Gill - Fantastic collection of original drawings by world-renowned illustrator - An insight into the workings of a creative mind - Invaluable for students of design/illustration - Simple, clear, appealing design 64 col., 71 b.andw.240 col.

About the Author

Bob Gill is a designer, an illustrator, a copywriter, a film-maker and a teacher. After freelancing in New York, he went to London on a whim in 1960 and stayed for fifteen years. He started Fletcher/Forbes/Gill, a design office with the two brightest designers in England. F/F/G began with two assistants and a secretary. Today, it's called Pentagram, with offices everywhere except Tibet. Gill returned to New York in 1975 to write and design Beatlemania. Gill still works independently and still teaches. He's had one-man shows in Europe, South America, the Far East and in the US. He was elected to the New York Art Directors Club Hall of Fame and the Designers and Art Directors Association of London recently presented him with their Lifetime Achievement Award. This is his sixth book about design and illustration.
