You'll Love This Issue If:
- You love illustration
- You want to know what Art Directors really think about illustrators
- You've got a thing for pictorial type
Print Magazine's February 2013 Issue is dubbed "The Illustration Issue," and in it we'll cover the gamut of the field from Rob Walker's in-depth piece on the Pencil Factory warehouse (if you're intrigued by the name, just wait until you read what it's all about!) to Steven Heller's interview with R. O. and Nicholas Blechman, a father and son pair of world-class designers. We also debut a brand new column called "The Last Word," a visual column in which Seymour Chwast gives his illustrative talents to the final words of notable people. Plus so much more!
