A Manifesto for Illustration


“There are not enough magazines or if you prefer all magazines are useless…”

I was luckily given permission to photocopy the above introduction to Issue 51 of Arc Magazine. I found it in the old offices of OZ Magazine in Notting Hill, now home to a most civilised graphic design practice. The magazine comprised a series of loose leaf lithographic prints by some of the best illustrative talent the 70’s had to offer. It was edited by Sue Coe and Stewart Mackinnon and includes works by The Brothers Quay, Terry Dowling, Eduardo Paolozzi, Douglas Dent and Andrzej Klimowski. Perhaps the most interesting contributor not to have written a comment in the introduction is Sue Coe and to compensate for this I thoroughly recommend this article about her published in issue 21 of Eye magazine.
