That is not to say the book isn't worth a look.
Jem
And, as an artifact in itself, I find the book well printed, solidly bound, and well laid out.

An excellent collection of what you could call "modern" fantasy art.

I saw this one at a local book store and I knew I had to get it! I have Fantasy Art Now which is from the same line of books and I paid retail for it! I wish I had got it from Amazon and saved some money! Don't let the name of the book fool you. This is not a porn art book. There are no sex scenes, and very little nudity. It's a collection of tastfull art of attractive women done by several different artist. It is a hardcover book, and very well binded and comes wrapped in a outer book sleeve to keep it protected. A fine addition to my ever growing library thanks to Amazon!

This collection proves - not that it needed proving - that there's no end to the imagery that the female figure can evoke. Eighty artists, averaging about two contributions each, offer dozens illustrations. Their styles range from cartoony (like Laberis and Bawidamann) or manga-like (e.g. Tan, Hepworth) to vividly realistic (too many to name) or nearly abstract (Bailey, Eliot). Media range just as widely: pencil, oils, watercolor, acrylic, gouache, electronic tools, and combinations.

Each picture freezes a moment from some story, whether that story has yet been told or not. Some convey a dark or disturbing mood, others elicit a giggle, and yet others offer simple awe, wonder, or enticing bits of titillation. Although some of these artists (including Suydam and Brom) have well established careers, other names aren't nearly as familiar - at least, not yet. They display many influences, though. I picked out visual references to Vaugh Bode, Barbarella, Frazetta, and Wood, and I probably missed at least as many others. Reference does not imply imitation, though; each work in this collection stands solidly on its own.

And, as an artifact in itself, I find the book well printed, solidly bound, and well laid out. Libraries of fantasy art and figure art will both welcome this lovely volume.

An excellent collection of what you could call "modern" fantasy art. I liked the fact that there were names of artists that I was not familiar with, but had seen their art on book covers or whatever. Interesting images, some of which might be considered "dark fantasy", others might be considered whimsical. Check it out if you get the chance!

This book does show nudity, but for the most part the nudity is simply a part of a fantasy theme. Anyone buying this book for a "turn-on" is likely to be disappointed. The art work is basically first class.

Format: Hardcover
I have many art books - mostly fantasy themed since I read so much SciFi/Fantasy. The title of this one, and the beatiful cover, suggested it would fit in with the art that appeals to me. However, I found it disappointing. Art is subjective, so I'll admit my other books all feature a single artist I knew I liked (e.g. Royo, Vallejo, Brom, etc). This is an "anthology" of various artists, and that is what I found lacking. The art is very eclectic, with some being photo-realistic, and other images looking cartoonish. Though it is broken into chapters with themes (barbarian women, wanton witches, etc), the variety of styles was somewhat discordant. Plus, nudity does not automatically equal erotic, nor does medieval equate to fantasy. And, this would have been more aptly named erotic fantasy art of women, since I only found a couple males in the lot. Men aren't erotic?! Not that I'm opposed to fantasy images of nude women, as that is mostly what Royo and Vallejo paint. However, they also know when to include men to enhance the eroticism, or at the least, their women's poses, or facial expressions conveyed eroticism. Most of these do not (at least to me). They aren't poorly done, just not erotic.

That is not to say the book isn't worth a look. There is some very beautiful imagery included, and I love how every image is accompanied by a paragraph explaining its origin, or general info about the artist. There is also a lot of diversity among the women, various ethicities and even a few plumper than the average supermodel! Some of the images are very erotic, but most are generic fantasy-types that could easily be the cover of a random adventure novel.

The art work in this book is sooooooo amazingly beautiful. There is also a wide variety and styles. Each is unique but all breath taking. I actually gave this as a gift to someone and found it hard to part with.
