Illustration Research is a network of academics and practitioners with the purpose of promoting the cultural significance of illustration, and to create opportunities to share research into and through illustration.

Our sister publication is the peer reviewed ‘Journal of Illustration’

Each year we collaborate with cultural and educational institutions to organise a symposium and exhibition. Selected papers and practice -led presentations are published in the peer reviewed Journal of Illustration (Intellect Books)
