ILLUSTRATION: Modern Vintage Illustration

Découvrez le livre de 224 pages "Modern Vintage Illustration" de Martin Dawber, à paraître début août 2012. Plus de 420 illustrations.

«A stunning survey of modern illustration that uses older styles of artistic expression to evoke a sense of another time and place. These vintage-style illustrations play with the past, subvert it, on occasion, but always feel fresh. Organized into 12 chapters by historical or cultural period, the book features hundreds of the best examples of modern retro illustration including styles as varied as Constructivist, Dada and Art Noveau. From work showing the ornamentation of Victorian fonts, the stylized angles of Art Deco, the lines of soviet poster art, the influence of Saul Bass and Blue Note record sleeves to the new slant on photorealism, and the renaissance of punk and comic art. Hundreds of artists from all over the world have contributed to a beautiful, witty and inspiring collection of vintage illustration that will inspire designers, illustrators and artists working today.
• Beautiful witty illustrations that plunder the past for their retro edge.
• Modern illustrations inspired by everything from Art deco and Soviet poster Art to Blue Note record seeves, comic books and punk. 

• Artists from around the world provide hundreds of illustrations to inspire, entertain and delight».

Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established
blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I'm thinking about creating my
own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions? Cheers

Using Blogger is very easy, but you need to have the lastest web browser, since the interface has changed. Setting up a blog with Blogger is very handy with all the add-ons available. Give it a try.
