A Journey Through Monochrome Illustrations

Reset your sight to a colorful world; towards light and shadow, towards the end of the color. Let’s take off on a journey throughout the illustrations, arts, and drawings drawn with a single color. The charm of the monochrome illustrations is its approachability as the basic expression that can draw only with a paper and a pencil. It is also width and depth of scenery described only with light and shade. This book introduces the remarkable work of modern monochrome illustrators selected from around the world. The works of 69 artists are included with a caption of techniques and materials they have used. A touch, a rhythm or a line of illustration appears more clearly in using limited color. This book inspires illustrators who want to enrich the range of expression, and also offers readers a pure pleasure of beautiful illustrations.
