Basics Illustration 03: Text and Image by Mark 'Wigan' Williams

Basics Illustration: Text and Image explores the fundamental purpose of illustration: the interpretation of words into pictures and the interplay of text and images as two forms of visual representation. The book looks at different methods of interpreting text and and using the two elements together. The basic principles of graphic communication are introduced through case studies and examples in which the relationships between illustration and text are analysed and explored. It features a wide range of work demonstrating diverse visual languages, ideas, techniques and skills.
