    Lots of pretty pictures, and some solid essays on the state of illustrating and publishing fields. It also includes a section of unpublished works by some of the artists. Don't open this if you are already prone to buying books for their covers. Lots of pretty pictures, and some solid essays on the state of illustrating and publishing fields.

    i remember first coming across the Spectrum art books in my twenties, when i would buy books simply for their dust jackets and hope the story inside wasn't too awful... the art in these books is amazing, creative, imaginary, dreamlike, fascinating, and ultimately full of life and the love of wonder and wondrous things... i would own them all if i could... extremely highly recommended... i remember first coming across the Spectrum art books in my twenties, when i would buy books simply for their dust jackets and hope the story inside wasn't too awful... the art in these books is amazing, creative, imaginary, dreamlike, fascinating, and ultimately full of life and the love of wonder and wondrous things... i would own them all if i could... extremely highly recommended...

    Spectrum 10: The Best in Comtemporary Fantastic Art is part of a series of what are basically picture books that feature fantasy art. This one had quite a few pictures I recognized, actually. Buffy comics and Warcraft orcs and dark elves to name a few. It wasn't much to read, since it was all pictures with captions of who the artist was and where it was from, but I wanted to make myself a note that I did indeed "read" this! It was a very cool book to flip through. Spectrum 10: The Best in Comtemporary Fantastic Art is part of a series of what are basically picture books that feature fantasy art.
