Beautiful Art that Falls Short on Creativity,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Spectrum 18: The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art (Hardcover)
This book is beautiful in every sense of the word, but when it comes to the content, I am disappointed to say the least. The majority of the work features the Magic the Gathering-esque graphics although you get a few minimalist and Post-modernist styles as well...even a few sculptures. Each artist does a great job producing something amazing - in fact, I loved the non-traditional pieces more than the computer generated ones; however, the majority of the work seemed to fall into the same old fantasy style.
I use this as a coffee table book for my guests, who tend to get lost in it from time to time. But like me, they skip through a lot of the work before finding one or two that they do like. 3/5
