IBIS was established in 1995 to encourage research into, and to facilitate the exchange of information on book and periodical illustrations, the artists and their publishers. The Society has a worldwide membership including artists, collectors, bibliographers, writers and general enthusiasts. Whilst IBIS embraces all aspects of illustrative art, the main emphasis is on the illustration of texts in English since the 1830s.


We regret to inform members that our scheduled visit to the Whittington Press later this year has been cancelled. We very much look forward to arranging a visit at a future day.

We are currently not maintaining our 'Events' page - but will resume normal service as soon as it makes sense to.
