Fifty Years of Illustration: This book charts contemporary illustrations rich history: the rampant idealism of the 1960s, the bleak realism of the 1970s, the over-blown consumerism of the 1980s, the digital explosion of the 1990s, followed by the increasing diversification of illustration in the early twenty-first century.
The Society of Illustrators 55th Annual of Illustration
Inspiration of Book: Redefine your notion of what a book can be with Inspiration of Book, a collection of over 150 of the most imaginative and innovative books ever made. Some of the books within are crafted from outlandish materials, such as wood, fabric, coconuts or clam shells; others are designed in a way that is counter-intuitive to how most of us envision a book, like books with glow-in-the-dark pages, Snoop Dogg’s smokeable book and the world’s first fully edible book. These books provoke the senses, inspire memories and stimulate our emotions.
Crafting Narrative: Story telling through objects and making.
Pen & Ink: Tatoos & the stories behind them Do Hu Suh Drawings
These new books are currently on display on the 2nd floor of Llandaff library. Follow the links to the library catalogue for more information or to place a reservation. Available to borrow from 24th June.
