Writing With Pictures and How Pictures Work go deeper into composition and story, but this book is great for its dozens of interviews with illustrators, editors, designers, & critics (from around the world), and for all the full-color illustrations from published books and personal projects. The chapter on digital illustration is an excellent primer for those who'd like to know more about how artists create with the computer.
I liked reading about process of other illustrators and comparing it to my MFA illustration classes. It was worth the money and I'm keeping it in my limited bookshelf space. That says a lot about it being a valuable reference.
