Book Illustrators

While children’s books often come to mind when we talk about book illustrators, genres including coffee table books, educational books, fiction and non-fiction novels, and many others require book illustrators to bring the text to life.

From beautiful covers to artwork on pages, book illustrators create unique images that enhance the story – be it fantastical fiction, or straightforward and instructional.

The author, publisher, or both will provide directions for the book illustrator, but the illustrator will also usually spend some time reading to capture the essence of the book before they begin to create the illustration.
