The best-selling Spectrum series continues with this twenty-sixth lavishly produced annual. Challenging, controversial, educational and irreverent, the award-winning 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 anticipated books. Featured in Spectrum 26 are over 330 diverse visionaries. With art from books, graphic novels, videogames, films, galleries, advertising and the fine arts, Spectrum 26 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 Year in Review found nowhere else. Contact information for each artist is included. Often imitated but never equaled, the latest Spectrum annual continues the freshness and excellence that was established more than twenty-six years ago. The mission of Spectrum is to promote the fantastic arts and provide an annual showcase for contemporary artists. The collection exists to honor the imaginations of very special artists who delight in helping us see the world in a wonderfully different light. It’s our job to help them reach a wider appreciative audience.
