I am always excited to see the new edition of this series.  Anyone who enjoys science fiction, fantasy, art & illustration will find ample to enjoy in this collection that spans book covers, editorial illustration, concept art for film, advertising, sculpture, and unpublished personal work.  It is always picked by a panel of accomplished artists and authors, and displays a wide range of styles and tastes.  Whether as a sourcebook for inspiration or doorway to daydreams, hours of pleasure are contained in its covers. -Bill's Holiday Staff Pick, 2016

Description


The best-selling Spectrum series continues with this twenty-third 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 highly most anticipated books.
Featured in Spectrum 23 are over 300 diverse visionaries. 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. The entire field is discussed in an invaluable, found-nowhere-else Year In Review. Contact information for each artist is included.
Often imitated, never equaled, Spectrum 23 continues the freshness and excellence that was established over twenty years ago.
