The process of making is an expedition to possibilities. It is an unprecedented excursion beyond set values and limitations, a sweet-and-sour journey that requires great patience, innovation and invincibility to forge ahead. With an interview section graced by the artists’ handwritings, doodles and distinctive characters, Illustration•Play 2, the second volume of our best-selling illustration series, Illustration•Play, is a body of sweat and surprises yielded from the most ordinary things you could find in life. From flat drawings and collage, to papercuttings, crafts, sculptures, bas-reliefs and installations, get prepared to experience the course of discovery and a different perspective of seeing through the extraordinary handworks made by the very playful hands of 24 makers from around the world! Don't sleep, wake up! You might be the next to stun the world!
