License To Inspire is the first book from the Central Illustration Agency (CIA). It brings together some of the leading illustrators the firm represents.

Here's the blurb:

'A collection of work from some of the world's most inspiring illustrators and the story of the agency that represents them.
License To Inspire is an eclectic mix of stunning artwork and fascinating interviews from the world's most talented illustrators and industry innovators.  An invaluable resource for art buyers and other professionals within the creative industries, this will soon become a recommended text for art students and particularly those who wish to work in the industry.

'With inclusions from a diverse range of artists from Jonas Bergstrand to Sir Peter Blake, the book is packed with beautiful images and thought-provoking words.  Created by the acclaimed Central Illustration Agency, who have been associated with the brightest talent in illustrative art since 1983, this book will be an essential addition to any coffee table or agency library.'

We've collected a series of images from the book by artists including Tom Bagshaw, Yuko Shimizu, John Royle and Nathan Fox.
