About American Illustration:

The American Illustration 32 presents the 369 winning images as selected by a jury of art and design professionals from over 8,700 submissions to a prestigious annual competition. For over 30 years now, the American Illustration books are lavishly produced in large-format, hardcover print, the AI32 annual, based on the creative direction by Richard Turley. An image index includes the artist’s contact information, captions and creative credits listing the publications, schools, agencies and clients who commissioned and utilized the winning work.

 Illustration, as a vital tool of communication and visual delight, continues to defy long-held and exaggerated reports of its own demise with artists taking bold risks and forging new markets with self-generated projects, all the while maintaining a healthy amount of traditional assignment work from publishers and advertising agencies. Illustration Lives.
