Reseña del editor
The best-selling Spectrum series continues with this twenty-first lavishly produced annual. Challenging, controversial, educational, and irreverent, the award-winning Spectrum 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 highly most anticipated books. Featured in SPECTRUM 21 are over 300 diverse visionaries, many of them world-renowned, including Paul Bonner, Donato Giancola, James Gurney, Iain McCaig, Shaun Tan, Sam Weber, Allen Williams. With art from books, graphic novels, video games, films, galleries, advertising and the fine arts, Spectrum 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, found-nowhere-else Year In Review. Contact information for each artist is included. Often imitated, never equaled, SPECTRUM 21 continues the freshness and excellence that was established twenty years ago.

Amazon for some reason (maybe known to others) offer a better price than in a bookstore. Therefore, I'm confident with the worthiness of this magazine in respect to the price.
Because the thing about a book like this is that it helps showcase a lot of artists that you might not otherwise know about. People who were hired to illustrate a book cover, or come up with comic art, or just wanted to do something creative but would otherwise have few venues to get the work shown, now have a forum of their fellow artists who judge submissions, select as many as they can, and cram them in gorgeous color onto a nice, full-sized book. The art in here is all fantastic, and it ranges from science fiction to fantasy to superheroes and just about anything you can imagine in between. The binding (I have the hardcover) and cover are strong and the paper is a nice gloss that shows the colors of the printed images very well.
I like the fact that they include everything from sculpture to paint, drawing and digital, and there are 'showcase' sections--have you heard of the Shifflet Brothers? You should! Check out Thomas Kuebler's very lifelike Edgar Allen Poe, that he did for Guillermo del Toro. That's the kind of unusual treat you'll see in a Spectrum book.
I love this series. If you enjoy wandering through imaginative artwork, Spectrum 21 is another entry in a series that I hope continues for years to come.
My only disappointment - and the reason for 4 stars instead of five - was in the winning entries. It raised an eyebrow as I paged through the book & didn't agree with any of the gold award winners (or even many of the finalists) & quickly found other art that I preferred in the same category - that hasn't happened before. I believe that the winners are chosen via a panel of judges, so in this case I suppose the issue is that I'm on a different wavelength than they are... I'm looking forward to Spectrum 22 for that reason because those judges seem to be more "up my alley" which may improve my experience with that book.
PS - I know one of the gold winners has responded to another review here on Amazon. I think your work is great; the issue here is purely that I preferred another entry in every case (which hasn't happened w/ the last 6 annuals).
