Taschen: This title deals with the art of likeness. It focuses on the spectrum of today's portraiture, from caricature to realism. The field of illustration has flourished over the last decade, with professionals working both by computer and by hand. In illustration, the single most challenging and captivating subject has been the portrait, frequently used in editorials, advertising, products, and most recently, being the subject of major exhibitions. The book gathers together the exclusive (and frequently unpublished) portrait work of over 80 illustrators from all over the world, many of whom were featured in "Illustration Now!", including Aaron Jasinski, Alex Gross, Andre Carrilho, Andrea Wicklund, and Anita Kunz.
