Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Challenging, controversial, educational, and irreverent, the award-winning Spectrum series reinforces both the importance and prevalence of fantastic art in todays 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 years highly most anticipated books.

Featured in SPECTRUM 19 are 300 diverse visionaries, many of them world-renowned, including Michael Whelan, Sam Weber, Donato Giancola, Leo and Diane Dillon, Kinuko Craft, James Gurney, Peter de Sève. With art from books, graphic novels, video games, films, galleries, and advertising, Spectrum is both an electrifying art book for fans and an invaluable resource for clients looking for bright new talent. The entire field is discussed in an invaluable, found-nowhere-else Year In Review. Contact information for each artist is included in a handy index.

Often imitated, never equaled, SPECTRUM 19 continues the freshness and excellence that was established seventeen years ago.

chris balduc, October 26, 2012 (view all comments by chris balduc)
If you love science fiction and fantasy art, Spectrum is the Academy Awards of the genre! Every year a panel of judges from all over the industry pick their favorite pieces from a broad, ummm... spectrum of catagories and media. Editoral art, comic art, illustration, sculpture and more. Every year a Grand Master is chosen and for 2012 it's James Gurney of Dinotopia fame. There is an excellent year-in-review editorial by Arnie Fenner that sums up the state of fantastic art from the previous year and how it relates to everything from politics to popular culture. The cliche stands: Love fantastic art? Can't afford every book you want? Get Spectrum!
