A research guide created for students in the illustration program at the Art Institute of Boston.

AI Archives Online

American Illustration (AI) is the premier showcase for editorial, advertising, book, poster, design, animation, fine art, unpublished and student work created by established, emerging and student illustrators. AI is regarded by creative professionals as a “book of record” and best source for today’s top image-makers. The online AI Archive features select images from the published print volumes; Moriarty Library has limited holdings of the print volumes.

Each year 3x3 Magazine assembles top juries for each of their three shows: professional, student and children's books. An international panel of judges vote independently and as a result the 3x3 show is one of the most unbiased juried competitions for illustration. 

It is available in print at Moriarty Library!
