On the Shelf

Use VISION, the library’s online catalog, to locate books on illustration.  Here are some subject searches to try:

For books on illustration and illustrators in general:
COMMERCIAL ART   
COMMERCIAL ARTISTS           
GRAPHIC ARTS
ILLUSTRATION OF BOOKS
ILLUSTRATORS

For books on magazine illustration:
MAGAZINE ILLUSTRATION

For books on children’s book illustration:

CHILDREN’S LITERATURE ILLUSTRATION

For books on illustration technique:
ANATOMY, ARTISTIC
ART TECHNIQUE
COMPUTER ART TECHNIQUE
DRAWING TECHNIQUE
GRAPHIC ARTS TECHNIQUE
ILLUSTRATION OF BOOKS TECHNIQUE

If you’re looking for a particular illustrator, try both a subject and an author search.  A subject search will yield books about that illustrator, an author search will yield books primarily containing reproductions of that illustrator’s work. 

Many of the library’s books on illustration may be borrowed from the library.  The following are some of reference books (which may only be used in the library) that are available:
