the new baroque

i just got hold of a smart new book entitled ‘territory’ (vol. 11) published by a malaysian organisation and although it’s labeled as a collection of design work it seems to be more an overview of the latest illustration trends that, like many current books on the subject shows a return to (or renaissance in?) illustration and a definite bent toward the more baroque style… or maybe that’s just the subjective choice of the editors? who knows…

featured amongst others are, jasper goodall, boris tellegen (a.k.a. delta) and non-format, whilst i find it very interesting to follow and generally beautifully made, i do not really feel a connection to this multi-layered, retro-baroque style of illustration
