- Full Description
300 diverse visionary artists, many world-renowned, including Michael Whelan, Donato Giancola, Leo & Diane Dillon, Kinuko Craft, and Peter de Sève. James Gurney (Dinotopia) is the featured Grand Master. Cover is by Brom. Here is the year's finest art, Gold, Silver and Bronze winners plus all carefully chosen runners up, picked by a jury of their peers. With art from books and book covers, graphic novels, video games, films, galleries, three-dimensional (statues, etc.) and advertising, Spectrum is truly an electrifying art book.
More veteran artists with new work: Justin Sweet, Scott Gustafson, Frank Cho, Gregory Manchess, Dan Dos Santos, Omar Rayyan, Petar Meseldzija, Boris Vallejo, John Picacio, Android Jones and Bobby Chiu. This just the briefest list from casually flipping through a few of the 304 pages.
The entire field is discussed in an invaluable, found-nowhere-else Year In Review by Arnie Fenner. Contact information for each artist is included.
Challenging, controversial, educational, and irreverent, the award-winning Spectrum series reinforces both the importance and prevalence of fantastic art in today's culture. With exceptional images by extraordinary creators, this elegant full-color collection showcases an international cadre of creators working in every style and medium, both traditional and digital. The best artists from the United States, Europe, China, Australia, South America and beyond have gathered in the only annual devoted exclusively to works of fantasy, horror, science fiction, and the surreal, making Spectrum one of every year's most anticipated books.
This hardcover edition is printed in a much more limited run than the softcover. Not only is this easier to read and to keep in good condition, Spectrum hardcovers are more collectible and command higher prices in the out-of-print market. Comes with full color jacket.
A massive collection, these just get bigger and bigger. A really great value especially at this sale price.
