...the freedom to dream, and the freedom to recreate those dreams for others. these things lie at the heart of picture-making.
The Picture Book, 2006

 

'The Picture Book Contemporary Illustration' celebrates the 'flourishing artform' of illustration. It is a compendium of contemporary illustrators edited by Angus Hyland and published by Laurence King.

The Picture Book gives an insight into each artist's thought process making this a rather personal and special book - '...the freedom to dream, and the freedom to recreate those dreams for others. these things lie at the heart of picture-making. It is evidenced in the text from the artists showcased in this book that the link between drawing, childhood play and dreaming is a strong one.' Angus Hyland
