Amelia's Compendium of Fashion Illustration
Building on the success (and prettiness!) of her first book, Anthology of Illustration, Amelia Gregory the founder of Amelia's Magazine, is back with her second instalment and its definitely a winner! Presenting in her usual beautiful and bright way, a range of amazing up and coming illustrators and key ethical fashion designers, its a fresh and attractive way of looking at ethical fashion and an essential must have for inspiration wether your a designer, illustrator or just general enthusiast. Expect to find interviews on the design practice of the chosen 30 illustrators (all hand picked via an open brief here) and a heap of great profiles on some of the very best in ethical fashion design, including (one of my favourite designers of the moment) Christopher Raeburn, 123 Bethnal Green Road, Junky Styling, Dem Collective and many more!
Oh and did i mention the whole book is entirely ethical in its production too? Another triumph from Amelia. If you haven't already check out the magazine and site now www.ameliasmagazine.com and find Amelia's Compendium of Fashion Illustration at Tate Modern, Magma, Design Museum, Serpentine Gallery, Tatty Devine, Cornerhouse, Arnolfini and loads of other good independent book stores.
