Attraction is just distraction that you enjoy.

I don't think I have ever read a book quite like this, so I'm having a hard time rating it. It's short, with little text and a lot of illustrations, but can't exactly be categorised as a comic book (although there are a few pages of the usual comic-style panels). Also, while it doesn't have the most beautiful art, it's definitely an eccentric and fun read to pass time.
We feel something particular when we look at appealing pictures - we j

I’m in the middle of two thick (almost 500 pages) books, and I’m all about accomplishment, so I pick a fun and quick read.
The illustration class has finished, but I intend to keep learning about it. It’s been fun and very fulfilling. This book by Mouni Feddag explains illustrations with illustrations (illustraception!) in an amusing way. I’m never a fan of pencil color illustrations but I like her style a lot. Also, in the back there’s a list of further reading! How I love book list 😄😄

Bought the book based on the fact that I like the author's illustrations- I made a mistake! I did actually enjoy the illustrations but this is a book I had high expectations for- another mistake! I was in the middle of learning about illustrations and what parts of text should be illustrated and such issues. I thought this book had something to add to that. Ah well, my bad! This by the way doesn't mean others might not find it a fun "read" although I think it's pretty sketchy scratching the surf ...more

Love love this book because of the illustrations style which is just so fun, beautiful and quirky. I like how it talks about points on illustration, but I would have liked a more elaborated version. Overall a light hearted, fun read with beautiful illustrations and I would definitely recommend it to friends.

Captivated by the illustration

I admire Mouni’s style of illustration but I don’t think I can say I’m satisfied with this book. I really wish Mouni will elaborate more about ‘the point of illustration’. But I still want to have the printed copy for the pleasure of my eyes (only got the Kindle version for now).
