Illustration Now! FASHION, by Julius Wiedermann – Taschen
Ok…I am just salivating over this new book…What a celebration to fashion illustration!
I’m not the only one that believes art and fashion are of one essence, that’s for sure. But to find a book that embodies this truth- for me- it doesn’t get much better than this.
Written in English, German and French, and filled to the brim with exceptional designer talent; I swear to you, every single page is like candy!
The book begins with a historical timeline perspective of fashion illustration and its importance throughout time. I found this to be such an enjoyable treat to read. Simple, to the point, while being filled with juicy historical relevance. Just the perfect appetizer for the subsequent immersion into a treasure of the most beautiful fashion art by 90 exceptional illustrators from around the world.
I’ll for sure be using this book as a springboard for inspiration in my own art work. In here, there’s no end to the creativity that can be translated through any of your favourite mediums. Vibrant, exquisite colours that just make fashion that much more fun. There’s also a brief biography of the artist and quotes of interest.
Here, I just CAN’T. Gotta show you NOW.
For all you fashion artists out there- and mixed media lovers alike (especially my friends who love drawing whimsical girls) …this is the ONE.
