“For me, a jury for a visual craft based book without Anne Telford’s discerning look would be incomplete.” – Michael Weinzettl introduces the jury for our 200 Best Illustrators book, a feast for the eyes that is due to hit shelves this summer.
Craig Frazier's The Illustrated Voice
At present we at Archive are working on the new volume of the bi-annual 200 Best Illustrators Worldwide, which is going to be published this summer.
My invaluable help in editing down the huge number of illustrations - as in the 200 Best Illustrators books that came before - was Dr. Matthew Eve, a writer, illustrator and curator.
Matthew - a Research Fellow in Typography and Graphic Communication at the University of Reading - has written and lectured widely on the history of illustration and design. Most recently Matthew was Guest Curator of the British Library's exhibition “Picture This: Children's Illustrated Classics.”

And last but not least, there was Anne Telford, who’s been assisting us with selecting the best in photography, illustration as well as digital imaging for quite a number of years now.
