Richard Wilkinson is a British illustrator, who borrows his influences from various places, of which one of them is Japanese art (I think). Very interesting and relaxing work he creates. With very soft colors he tends to create a ‘relaxed’ illustration.

During the period of 1918 and 1932 there was a Dutch magazine called “Wendingen”(it translates to English as something like “Curvings”). It was a very designwise groundbreaking magazine. And it’s influences were quite big, (in terms of Dutch graphic design), even De Stijl borrowed some influence from it.

The website (Dutch) below has made an effort of showing an overview ofmost the magazine releases:

The interesting thing of “wendingen” was that it didn’t only feature graphic designers. It was a magazine dedicated to architecture and related subjects, but still featured a lot interesting design and typography.

A fine example of technique and craftsmanship coming with age:
