Spectrum 23: The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art (hardcover)


The best-selling Spectrum series—often imitated but never equaled—continues with this lavishly produced 23rd annual. Spectrum is the premier showcase for imaginative fantastic arts in the book, comic, film, horror, illustration, sculpture, conceptual art, fine art and videogame genres. With exceptional images by extraordinary artists, this elegant, full-color collection showcases an international cadre of creators working in every style and medium—both traditional and digital. The volume features over 500 works by nearly 300 diverse visionaries, including Julie Bell, Rovina Cai, Brom, Frank Cho, Annie Stegg Gerard, Donato Giancola, James Gurney, J. Anthony Kosar, Vance Kovacs, Iain McCaig, Victo Ngai, Tran Nguyen, Karla Ortiz, Terryl Whitlatch and Allen Williams. Spectrum 23 continues the freshness and excellence that was established over twenty years ago.

Challenging, controversial, educational, and irreverent, the award-winning Spectrum series reinforces both the importance and prevalence of fantastic art in today’s culture. 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.

The mission of Spectrum is to promote the fantastic arts and provide an annual showcase for contemporary artists. Spectrum exists to honor the imaginations of very special artists who delight in helping us to see the world in a wonderfully different light. It’s our job to help them reach a wider appreciative audience.
