The Grand Master Award in this series goes to James Gurney. I was wondering when. Beside him, you'll see a lot of new and familiar names in the world of art. The art is fantastic and wide ranging as usual.
This is a great deal for the price of the book, which comes in paperback and hardcover. 304 pages total.
Highly inspirational. Highly recommended.

Spectrum 19 isn't perfect: although they work really hard to clearly and colorfully print every work I spotted a couple that were surprisingly out of focus. Because many of these works were commissioned for a purpose, such as a book cover or an illustration, they tend towards the 'graphic arts' more than 'fine arts'--figures placed front and center, backgrounds sometimes de-emphasized, digital processing at times a bit lurid. However, looking through these books is magical. There is so much imagination, and so many diffent ways these artists present their creativity, that I can't help but enjoy each year's new volume. For creative people, this is a fun journey through others' imaginations.
