Emma Dexter's introductory text offers a critical account of the recent evolution and role of drawing in the art world, and introduces some of the trends, methods and artists included in the book. In the following and largest section of the book (over 300 pages and approximately 500 illustrations), the 100 or more artists are presented in an A to Z order. Some artists are presented on 2 pages, some on 4 pages. About 5 selections of work are reproduced for each artist, along a text written by an author who is a specialist on the artist's work. The 500-word texts are brief surveys of the artist's career to date, and aim at introducing the methods and subject matter at issue in their recent works. A selected list of exhibitions and bibliography also complements the reproductions and text on each artist.

"Drawing has recently experienced a renewal of importance in the art world and has rarely been as widely represented in biennials, art fairs, and exhibitions as it is now. Similar in concept, scope, and structure to Phaidon's successful volume Vitamin P, Vitamin D presents, in A-Z order, the work of 109 artists who have emerged internationally since 1990. All use drawing as a primary medium. Whether representational or abstract, small or large in scale, using only one line or rich in colors and pattern, drawings have a highly descriptive and meticulously detailed quality that is being explored by an increasing number of contemporary artists. Extending beyond images traditionally associated with this medium, Vitamin D illustrates the complexity, variety, and relevance of the practice of drawing today."--Jacket. || Contents: Preface--Introduction / Emma Dexter--D-L Alvarez--Francis Alÿs--Ryoko Aoki--Kaoru Arima--Silvia Bächli--Devendra Banhart--Anna Barriball--Shannon Bool--Michaël Borremans--Andrea Bowers--Jesse Bransford--Fernando Bryce--Cai Guo-Qiang--Ernesto Caivano--Los Carpinteros--Raimond Chaves--Sandra Cinto--Russell Crotty--Roberto Cuoghi--John Currin--Amy Cutler--Jeff Davis--Tacita Dean--Trisha Donnelly--Marlene Dumas--Sam Durant--Marcel Dzama--Memed Erdener--Simon Evans--Simon Faithfull--Spencer Finch--Urs Fischer--Roland Flexner--Ellen Gallagher--Matt Greene--Joseph Grigely--Anna Sigmond Gudmundsdottir--Daniel Guzmán--Sebastian Hammwöhner--Trenton Doyle Hancock--Björn Hegardt--Arturo Herrera--Nobuya Hoki--Christian Holstad--Huang Yong Ping--Dean Hughes--Gareth James--Yun-Fei Ji--Chris Johanson--Kerstin Kartscher--William Kentridge--Toba Khedoori--Dr. Lakra--Michael Landy--Ricardo Lanzarini--Graham Little--Mark Lombardi--Mindaugas Lukosaitis--Marco Maggi--Frank Magnotta--Mark Manders--Yuri Masnyj--Dominic McGill--Julie Mehretu--Jean-François Moriceau and Petra Mrzyk--Claudia and Julia Müller--Dave Muller--Vik Muniz--David Musgrave.
