"‘decorative’ illustration can punctuate, alleviate or illuminate a
text. It can take the form of an arrangement or composition, act as a frame or rule,
break‐up an area and provide ‘light relief’ to texts or typography."
To me decorative illustration, decorates a page and emphasizes the meaning. I automatically thought of children's book. I have a number of children's books so I will be bringing these books into University for the discussion. I will be bringing Roald Dahl - The Twits. Flower Fairies - Cicely Mary Barker. The Tale of Peter Rabbit - Beatrix Potter. These are books from my childhood which got me interested in Illustration.
