Multiple Artists 100 Years of Fashion Illustration
Published by Laurence King 2007
The very first attempt at a comprehensive visual record of all the best known fashion illustrators and those who would have otherwise disappeared into the past. Author, Cally Blackman has created a visual feast of over 400 dazzling images and offers an overview of the development of fashion, as seen through the eyes of the greatest illustrators of the day. Early in the century fashion illustration reflected new, liberating currents in art and culture, such as the exoticism of the Ballets Russes, while the postwar period saw inspiration from the great Parisian couturiers. After the dominance of the celebrity fashion photographer in the '60s, a new generation of illustrators emerged, embracing the medium of the computer, while many returned to more traditional techniques.
