These days, it seems like anyone with camera (or even the right iPhone app) can call themselves a fashion photographer--particularly, if shooting street style. But fashion illustrator? Now that remains a bit more sacred. Enter Tony Glenville's new text from Laurence King publishing, New Icons of Fashion Illustration, which features 28 of today's most talented fashion illustrators. Including everyone from Cedric Rivrain to Piet Paris, the book dedicates a chapter to each artist individually, giving the reader a comprehensive understanding of the illustrator's style and technique. Plus, you'll also find a really rad sketch of Alexa Chung about halfway through. So whether you're an art major, a fashion designer, or simply a clothes enthusiast, this book will likely become the MVP of your coffee table.
