Basics Illustration 03: Text and Image explores the basic function of illustration: the interpretation of words into pictures and the interplay of text and image as two forms of visual representation.

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.

The book features a wide range of work demonstrating diverse visual languages, ideas, techniques and skills. It also examines the production of artefacts, for example, artists' books, graphic novels, posters and handmade typography, stencils, graffiti, and fonts designed by illustrators
