Question about artist using photos

Today I was notified that one of my photos has been used in a book without my consent, the book is by an (apparently) pretty well known artist/designer and it has been published by quote "one of the world's largest publishing companies" (one would've thought they'd know better)

The photo itself has been altered to look like some kind of modern digital drawing but is clearly my own .

I don't want to name and shame the artist nor do I want to come across as an a-hole when dealing with this.

My question is; should I contact the publisher or the artist? Who is legally responsible?

Furthermore I do recall reading something about photographer who lost a case where his/her photo had been used in a similar matter.

Knew very little about photography when I decided to buy the awesome Nikon D70; learned quickly that this expensive camera didn't make me a good photographer.
