ILLUSTRATION MAGAZINE
























Next issue
In the year ahead we'll be looking at the work of two very British, yet contrasting artists, when we view the evocative wood-engravings of Clare Leighton and find out how she depicted rural life when much of it was changing. Then we visit a new exhibition at the V&A of the richly detailed arts and crafts illustrations of Lockwood Kipling. We find out more about the way he pioneered a novel way of illustrating books to bring Indian life and architecture to a British audience.
The many and varied artists who depicted the Great War 1914-1918 in magazines and books across Europe are the subject of a fascinating view into a personal collection. This gives us a chance to explore images that reflect experiences not just in the UK, but across the continent, and we discover little-known cartoons as well as work by famous war artists. We then return to the 21st century when we talk to illustrators about their contributions to an exhibition of work influenced by the late great Brian Wildsmith. Next we’ll talk to George Hardie about his life in commercial illustration and working on album covers for famous bands.In future issues we’ll consider Noel Carrington’s Puffin Picture Books and the children’s books of Edward Gorey. All this, plus work by new graduates, the best books, events and exhibitions and the work of fine presses.
