    Editor’s Note

    Culled from our Illustration Now! series is this selection of today’s most successful and important illustrators from around the globe. In his introduction, Steven Heller fleshes out the challenging process of narrowing down a field of 600 illustrators to a selection of the 100 most significant. The final cut, including artists such as Istvan Banyai, Gary Baseman, Seymour Chwast, Paul Davis, Brad Holland, Mirko Ilic, Anita Kunz, and Christoph Niemann, provides a snapshot of the highly dynamic and diverse world of contemporary illustration.

    The Book Review:

    TASCHEN is widely revered for their subject mater, high quality, and grand formats of their books. Their latest tome, 100 Illustrators, is no exception. A large textured slipcase encloses the two volumes. The covers themselves working as teaser for what’s inside. The pages are thoughtfully plotted, retaining emphasis on the gallery aspect of the book. Though there is plentiful information per illustrator (presented in English, French, and German no less), thanks to the large format of the book, both images and words sit without compromise on the page.
