9781887424028: Spectrum 2: The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art (SPECTRUM (UNDERWOOD BOOKS))

The acclaimed Spectrum series is the premier venue for fantasy and science fiction artwork. The only book to thoroughly address the amazing variety and quality of fantastic art created each year, the release of each annual issue is an eagerly anticipated event for artists, readers, and art directors alike. The early issues in the series had very small print runs, sold out quickly, and today, are much sought-after by collectors. Now in print for the first time in ten years, Spectrum 2 features works by Hugo Award-winner Michael Whelan; Caldecott winners Diane and Leo Dillon; James Gurney, creator of Dinotopia; and more than 200 other pieces created by artists from Germany, England, the Netherlands, Australia, Japan, Canada, France, and America. Drawn from books, comics, magazines, art galleries, advertisements, and artist’s portfolios, these visionary portraits of the future offer fans an intriguing look at the evolution of fantastic art over the past decade.

Review:

The best artwork by creators of fantasy and horror characters has been culled from books, comics, ads, magazines and other sources to provide an unusually well-rounded, expansive view of the creators of science fiction images. Usually such collections revolve around the art of a single selected individual: in juxtaposing the approaches and works of many, Spectrum 2 creates a fine and diverse presentation of award-winning images. -- Midwest Book Review
