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.
The next issue of Studies in Illustration (no. 73) is in preparation and will be sent to all members in November. The current issue, no. 72, includes articles and reviews on Helen Oxenbury, Henry Keen and the Pre-Raphaelite Kiss.
