    illuminated/illustrated story.

    This book is full of illuminated story.
    This book is full of illustrated story.


    Do you think these sentences are correct?

    If yes, what is the difference in meaning with these sentences in respect to "illuminated" and "illustrated" ?

    To me, the both sound as, "The book has many pictures".

    The second one means what you think. A story isn't illuminated. A manuscript/scroll/book is illuminated; a story can be illuminating (but only if it casts light - in the figurative sense).
