Illustrated Books Bringing Life To The PageAlthough illustrated books are often thought of as being strictly for children, illustrations have long had a place in adult literature as well. In fact, many great books of the past have been illustrated. In the middle ages, important manuscripts and religious documents were decorated with elaborate illuminations. These drawings and inlays added ornamentation to the pages and often illustrated the contents of the writing. When the novel first came into its own in the 1800s, many books contained illustrations. Small ink drawings were common. Many of the first novels were published serially in magazines and many of these magazines also contained illustrations.
Although illustrations are not as common as they once were, illustrated books do still survive. Children's books contain the most vivid and the most obvious pictures. In fact, picture books usually contain more illustrations than they do words. Many classic novels that were first published with line drawings still include the same illustrations. Additionally, a number of publishers produce limited edition books that feature beautiful illustrations that appeal to collectors.
Illustrated books are welcome additions to any bookshelf. Illustrations add a spark of extra life to a page of printed letters. They augment the images created by the words of great authors. They bring key characters and events from a story to life, giving readers physical pictures that were previously trapped in the mind. Limited edition books with beautiful covers and illustrations make great gifts that are cherished by those who receive them. In some cases, the illustrations are classic drawings that were included in the original publications. Newer books that were not originally illustrated may come with artwork by well-known artists or talented contemporary illustrators.
Giving the Gift of Illustration
Although limited edition books make great gifts, it can be difficult to choose the right ones to suit your recipients. In general, people want limited editions of books that they already love. If you know your recipient's favorite book, you can try to find it in a limited edition. That being said, if you know your recipient well enough, you may be able to branch out and buy them something new. Illustrated books come in many different genres. Historical nonfiction, classic literature, philosophy, politics, humor, and religion are all common topics printed in limited editions. Once you think you know what your recipient wants, you can choose the book that is best suited to their tastes.
