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.
Organised 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 stylised 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 this beautiful, witty and inspiring collection of vintage illustration that will inspire designers, illustrators and artists working today.
