The book illustration industry is a pretty competitive on. Make use of this, and ask them to be your extra pair of eyes.

The book illustration industry is a pretty competitive one. However, if you don’t mind a few late nights, and putting up with a few rejections here and there, you might find yourself earning a book illustrator salary before you realize it. Book illustration? What is it? Knowing how to draw books is a tricky thing, and book illustration is actually considered a form of fine art. It is basically the art of making images and pictures, drawn, for books.

Unlike book illustration in general, the history of children’s book illustration dates back only three hundred years. It started with folk tales and ABC books and gradually created its own fascinating world. Several generations of Russian children have grown up under the spell of Ivan Bilibin’s illustrations. Being a piece of art, book illustration combines simultaneously several important functions: it creates special cultural space in a room, increases the sense of magic the book conveys, provides irresistible esthetic pleasure and, of course, serves as a great decoration for the dwelling.

Extending the Book introduces the largely-forgotten art of extra-illustration -- individually adding portraits or other illustrations to published books -- and explores what this personalized form of book design reveals about the history of reading.It includes a brief introduction to the concept of designing and creating a unique book by adding external material and an overview of the phenomenon’s history and its heyday in the later eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The works of Shakespeare -- the most popular single author for extra-illustration -- exemplify the practice as it changed over time.From the beginning, extra-illustrators had to defend the “exquisite handicraft” (in the words of an 1890 proponent) against accusations of “breaking up a good book to illustrate a worse one” (in the words of an 1892 critic). This book examines the art and the practice of extra-illustration, from crudely altered books to beautiful new creations.
