If you go a little deeper into history, then initially the manuscripts were illustrated with miniatures, executed and hand-painted, and only after the invention of typography did illustrations get the opportunity to be replicated and took their rightful place in book graphic. Illustration can be distinguished as an independent genre of fine art thanks to one obligatory attribute. Depending on the size and position in the book, the following book illustration styles are distinguished: Cover, frontispiece, splash screen, strip illustration (full page), half-strip, reversal (two pages), defense (small picture surrounded by text), and marginal drawings. Do you think I missed anything?
