“According to the classical definition, Illustration is regarded as a service. It serves a customer and his text. On the other hand, in art the creator is his own customer. Using various views and positions of invited artists and illustrators we will try to discuss this phenomenon.”
Patrick Hartl & Yvonne Winkler
