The role of educational media in the context of education supports the process of the success of a student in understanding the educational material provided. The development of educational media in the form of illustration books with the historical theme of the history of cultural heritage buildings is the aim of this research, especially in the design process of graphic communication courses for the Department of Visual Communication Design in the field of Graphic Design specialization. This research was conducted in order to make an output from the graphic communication course. Illustration books with cultural heritage themes are also used as pre and post- test research studies for elementary school age children to find out how much understanding and absorption of material given to them through visual processing. Illustrations of cultural heritage buildings were developed through direct observation of cultural heritage buildings for later process design in order to create interesting educational media. The research method with ADDIE (Analyze, Design, Development, Implementation, and Evaluation) models is used to produce output in the form of educational media design prototypes in the form of illustrated books and then implemented to the design target. Observation data is used to then analyze quantitative descriptive. This illustration book is an example of output material used for graphic communication courses as well as educational media research that is used to see the effectiveness of the media and the potential quality of learning for elementary school children about the historical heritage buildings that are illustrated in the form of illustrative educational media. The results of this study are expected to provide knowledge in the form of process design to students while making it easier for students to absorb learning material.
