We had a look at the new book "Fifty Years of Illustration" by Lawrence Zeegen and Caroline Roberts. Should you get yourself a copy?

What's it about? 

A large gathering of incredible illustrations from the last fifty years. Lawrence Zeegen and Caroline Roberts' "Fifty Years of Illustration" takes you through various eras of the best illustrators and their work. 

Zeegan and Roberts' book contains five decades (from the 60s to the 00s) of world class illustrators, complete with a sampling of some of their best work alongside a short description of their career. Each decade also comes with a few introductory pages explaining the historical and cultural context the illustrators operated in, offering you a much deeper understanding of their work.
