A playful sticker-bound cover gets this book off to a good start. The first artist uses fabric and stitching to concoct her illustrations - something I hadn't really seen before...that is until about 200 pages and a dozen other artists doing the same, later.

Overall, this book was a welcome departure from digital-centric art. While there are various methods and media featured, this book makes it seem like every other "unique" artist has jumped on the fabric and embroidery bandwagon. They all just start to feel derivative of eachother when lumped in a book together. But maybe embroidery just isn't my cup of tea.

Some truly innovative/interesting artists mixed with a bunch that just didn't do it for me.

I found Illustration Play very inspiring. While the hand of the artist is clearly evident in the included work, it brings a warm handmade aesthetic that is not just another gimmicky contrived DIY style, but the real deal. Good solid work throughout.

I was quite surprised by this book and delighted I got it. It has very good work quality as well as a great compilation of designers. It is a great source of inspiration and a pleasure to see from start to end. I highly recommend it for those designers/artists that would like to explore on handmade stuff.

Fantastic design book! Very inspiring and the perfect addition to any artist's collection. The variety of styles and the artist Q&A's are very entertaining!
