ILLUSTRATION Understanding Illustrations and Various Types of Illustrations Illustrations are derived from the Latin illustrare
Illustrations are derived from the Latin illustrare which means appearance, glory, light, illumination and depiction alive. Illustration is the art of making a picture that serves to clarify and explain the script. Illustrations are used to clarify messages. Illustrations can help retention. which facilitates the reader to remember the concept or ideas conveyed through the illustration.
Illustration saves the place of presentation because the illustration can present a complex and broad concept in a limited space. Judging from its function, the illustration has three functions namely descriptive, expressive and analytical.
Illustration serves descriptive, which replaces the description of something verbally and narratively by using a long sentence. Verbal and narrative descriptions are inefficient because it requires enough space and less effective because it seizes the attention of readers on that part only.
