Bookshelf: What We’re Reading


Taschen’s recently published 100 Illustrators culls a select list of the most significant contemporary artists from their Illustration Now! series. Including work from Istvan Banyai, Gary Baseman, and Anita Kunz, the compilation displays the diverse and showstopping work of the most compelling illustrators of current times. Visual Editions’¬†Where You Are assembles a variety of writing and visuals from thinkers, writers, and artists to challenge and expand upon conventional notions of what a map is. A lovely children’s book, Aventures d’un Village, replaces traditional pages with origami-like paper forms. The choose-your-own-adventure centers around an evolving village that morphs as the painterly images are unfolded.
