What's the point of illustration? Find out the answer about the most in fashion of the graphic arts.

What's the point of illustration? Find out the answer through the flair and humour of a rising talent in the field.

Of all the graphic arts, illustration is currently the most dynamic and exciting. In every medium - advertising, book publishing, product design, houseware and home furnishings - new talents are emerging, making their mark and (in some cases) a fortune out of their illustration skills.

But why? In this uniquely presented book, gifted illustrator Mouni Feddag takes on the subject and gives it the treatment it deserves. Witty, dynamic, wide-ranging and visual, this title answers the big questions that illustration throws up, including:

What's the point of hand-drawn things?
What's the point of pictures?
What's the point of looking good?
What's the point of decoration?
What's the point of commercial art?
What's the point of repetition?

Lagom

Linnea Dunne
Authors:
Linnea Dunne

Step aside Hygge. Lagom is the new Scandi lifestyle trend taking the world by storm. This delightfully illustrated book gives you the lowdown on this transformative approach to life and examines how the lagom ethos has helped boost Sweden to the No.10 ranking in 2017's World Happiness Report. Lagom (pronounced 'lah-gom') has no equivalent in the English language but is loosely translated as 'not too little, not too much, just right'. It is widely believed that the word comes from the Viking term 'laget om', for when a mug of mead was passed around a circle and there was just enough for everyone to get a sip. But while the anecdote may hit the nail on the head, the true etymology of the word points to an old form of the word 'lag', which means 'law'.Far from restrictive, lagom is a liberating concept, praising the idea that anything more than 'just enough' is a waste of time. Crucially it also comes with a selflessness and core belief of responsibility and common good. By living lagom you can: Live a happier and more balanced life Reduce your environmental impact Improve your work-life balance Free your home from clutter Enjoy good food the Swedish way Grow your own and learn to forage Cherish the relationships with those you love
