|A general definition of the word illustration:|
"The word "illustration" comes from the latin word illustra'tio, illu'stro meaning enlighten, irradiate.

Illustrations can also represent scientific images (e.g. of flora, medicinal applications, technical processes etc.) as a means of providing information on how to use something." see Wikipedia
