Illustration: ‘to illuminate’ – the throwing of light onto a subject matter through visual means shadows the history of ideas and holds a lens to the cultural conditions in which it is produced. In this issue of the journal there are wide-ranging ideas on the nature of the subject and discipline of illustration. This journal seeks to promote both writing about the subject and also hybrid and visualized forms of thinking through illustration. The remit of the journal is to consider historical and contemporarycontexts in which illustration can be observed and theoretical frameworks through which itcan be described and understood. In this issue there are articles that map historical trajectories and define modes for literary illustration, suggest taxonomies for forms of illustrative practice, and consider the phenomenological and epistemological nature of drawings for reportage and object based illustration.
