An illustration is a visualization such as a drawing, painting, photograph or other work of art that stresses subject 'more than form'.

The aim of an illustration is to elucidate or decorate textual information (such as a story, poem or newspaper article) by providing a visual representation.

Illustrations can:

  • give faces to characters in a story;
  • display examples of an item described in an academic textbook (e.g. a typology);
  • visualize step-wise sets of instructions in a technical manual;
  • communicate subtle thematic tone in a narrative;
  • link brands to the ideas of human expression, individuality and creativity; and
  • inspire the viewer to feel emotion to expand on the linguistic aspects of the narrative.

Many illustrations are (or at least should be filed and) classified under the appropriate subcategories of: • Engravings or

Teaching illustrations, which will, in practice, usually mean in a sub-category of one of:
  1. Illustrations by subject
  2. Teaching illustrations by subject
  3. Illustrations by language (Most of which will be more correctly found in Teaching illustrations by language)
