I bought this very recently and have enjoyed every page. The book looks at a range of artists with a different approach to creating their visual art. From screenprinting to papercutting to stitch and embroidery (and many more). There are short interviews on the artists giving an idea on their take of Art.

If you like artwork with a different approach, I highly recommend this book.

This book is fantastic, all the artists in this book are excellent and their work is so individual and often breathtaking. I am so glad I purchased this book, it really gets the creative juices flowing and shows exactly what some of us are capable of if we put our mind to it.
I love the way the pages in the book change colour and material throughout and the interviews with the artists at the end gives a real insight.
Oh and the cover is great too!
I definately recommend.

Saw this book in a shop ages ago, and put it on the 'I'll buy that when I get home' list. I am really glad that I did. This book is beautiful, with lots of gorgeous and inspiring pictures. I found it particularly appealing as I am a textile artist, and this seemed to feature a lot of textile/ embroidery based illustration work. I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in illustration, or just creativity in general. A really nice coffee table book.

Too Much Embroidery 1 Feb. 2008
By eneri - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
A playful sticker-bound cover gets this book off to a good start. The first artist uses fabric and stitching to concoct her illustrations - something I hadn't really seen before...that is until about 200 pages and a dozen other artists doing the same, later.

Overall, this book was a welcome departure from digital-centric art. While there are various methods and media featured, this book makes it seem like every other "unique" artist has jumped on the fabric and embroidery bandwagon. They all just start to feel derivative of eachother when lumped in a book together. But maybe embroidery just isn't my cup of tea.

Some truly innovative/interesting artists mixed with a bunch that just didn't do it for me.

A Creative High Point 2 Feb. 2008
By Christl - Published on Amazon.com
I found Illustration Play very inspiring. While the hand of the artist is clearly evident in the included work, it brings a warm handmade aesthetic that is not just another gimmicky contrived DIY style, but the real deal. Good solid work throughout.

I was quite surprised by this book and delighted I got it. It has very good work quality as well as a great compilation of designers. It is a great source of inspiration and a pleasure to see from start to end. I highly recommend it for those designers/artists that would like to explore on handmade stuff.
