Professor Thomas La Padula’s Contribution in Chapter 21 of the History of Illustration
“The authoritative book on the origins, history, and influence of illustration. Bravo!” David Brinley, University of Delaware, USA
History of Illustration covers image-making and print history from around the world, spanning from the ancient to the modern. Hundreds of color images show illustrations within their social, cultural, and technical context, while they are ordered from the past to the present. Readers will be able to analyze images for their displayed techniques, cultural standards, and ideas to appreciate the art form. This essential guide is the first history of illustration written by an international team of illustration historians, practitioners, and educators.
“For the first time we have a comprehensive volume on the History of Illustration. This epic book covers illustration from cave painting to the 21st Century, while at the same time employing a global and cultural survey. It is beautifully illustrated and expertly written. I am very proud to be part of this project and write along side a great team of practitioner’s, experts, museum curators and academics .” said Professor La Padula whose contribution is Chapter 21: Wartime imagery and Propaganda.
