100 Illustrators is a gigantic 2-book slipcase set from publisher Taschen. I've seen the books. They are huge and heavy. If you're getting from Amazon, weight surcharge may apply.
The books feature artists that are selected from the Illustration Now! series. These are some of the more successful and prominent artists from around the world.
There's a self portrait from each illustrator, examples of their work and a profile written by author Steven Heller. Artists include Istvan Banyai, Gary Baseman, Seymour Chwast, Paul Davis, Brad Holland, Mirko Ilić, Anita Kunz, Christoph Niemann and a whole lot more.

If you buy the links, I get a little commission that helps me get more books to feature.
