Fifty Years of Illustrations HC (2014 Chronicle Books) comic books 2014-2016
1st printing. By Lawrence Zeegan. This book charts contemporary illustration's rich history: from the rampant idealism of the 1960s to the bleak realism of the 1970s, and from the over-blown consumerism of the 1980s to the digital explosion of the 1990s, followed by the increasing diversification of illustration in the early twenty-first century. Contemporary illustration's impact and influence on design and popular culture are investigated through introductory essays and profiles of leading practitioners, illustrated with examples of the finest work. Hardcover, 9-in. x 11-in., 384 pages, full color. Cover price $40.00.
