(Introduction) 'The purpose of this book is to put into perspective what we think about certain aspects of illustration. Illustration is a lot of things. It can be considered as a work of art or as a visual answer to a specific literary problem. Or it can be both. It can provide information, or elucidation. It can be a means of social comment or it can entertain.

Most of the examples that we show here are by contemporary American and British artists who use illustration as a means of personal expression. These drawings speak for themselves, they need no comment from us. We have chosen them because they illustrated our theme better than any others we could find, not because they were necessarily better (or worse) than all the others we would have liked to have included.

We have limited our text to a series of short introductions to each chapter. When we have referred to certain artists and art movements it is to help establish influences and trends that appear in con- temporary work.'
