It discusses what to include and how to organize and display the work, and also advises on presentation techniques and self-promotion. Both print and virtual portfolios are covered.
Whether as a complement to written content or a stand-alone attention getter, illustration is being used more and more often to set prominent accents. Illustrations have become a key component of advertising, communication, reporting, and other
media. Because visual storytelling gets messages across more effectively in our age of information overload, illustration is gaining in importance. It's no wonder that the current spectrum of creative expression represented by this technique is so vast. Illusive 4 is the definitive reference of contemporary illustration and these developments.
The contributors to this volume examine the historical and philosophical issues concerning the role that scientific illustration plays in the creation of scientific knowledge. They regard both text and picture as resources that scientists employ in their practical activities, their value as scientific resources deriving from their ability to convey information.
