- Full Description
The best-selling Spectrum series continues with this 21st lavishly produced annual. 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 into the only annual devoted exclusively to works of fantasy, horror, science fiction, and the surreal, making Spectrum one of the year's most highly anticipated books.
Featured in Spectrum 21 are over 300 diverse visionaries, many of them world-renowned, including Paul Bonner, Donato Giancola, James Gurney, Iain McCaig, Shaun Tan, Sam Weber and Allen Williams. With art from books, graphic novels, video games, films, galleries, advertising and the fine arts, Spectrum is both an electrifying art book for fans and an invaluable resource for clients looking for bright new talent or the most talented veterans.
The entire field is discussed in an invaluable, found-nowhere-else "Year In Review." This draws together in one place the trends, the successes, the newcomers, the projects that came about in the past year in our amazing field. Contact information for each artist is included.
Often imitated, never equaled, Spectrum 21 continues the freshness and excellence that was established twenty years ago. Now under new publisher and designer John Fleskes, this has a fresh new look that we quite enjoy. This year's judges are each profiled with pictures, and award-winners are also featured with photos. Fleskes takes over the "Year in Review" from former publisher Arnie Fenner.
