About Varoom

Illustration, culture, society Varoom – the illustration report, is a unique large format publication commenting and discussing the contemporary illustrated image in depth, and features interviews with illustrators, image-makers and designers as well as featuring critical articles on different aspects of contemporary illustration by leading commentators.

Varoom is a great celebration of illustration, and does a superb job placing the form in a broader context.’ Jeremy Leslie, magculture.com


A range of expert contributing editors reveal their choice of work that has most impressed them over the last few months from the worlds of illustration and design, fashion and politics, music and digital, children’s books and reportage. Regular Varoom columnists, illustrators Marian Bantjes and Paul Davis, offer amazing visuals and comment with beautiful styling and acerbic wit. Peer reviewed illustration research papers are also published through the VaroomLab research network
