The best-selling Spectrum series continues with this twenty-sixth lavishly produced annual. Challenging, controversial, educational and irreverent, the award-winning 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 most anticipated books. Featured in Spectrum 26 are over 330 diverse visionaries. With art from books, graphic novels, videogames, films, galleries, advertising and the fine arts, Spectrum 26 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 Year in Review found nowhere else. Contact information for each artist is included. Often imitated but never equaled, the latest Spectrum annual continues the freshness and excellence that was established more than twenty-six years ago. The mission of Spectrum is to promote the fantastic arts and provide an annual showcase for contemporary artists. The collection exists to honor the imaginations of very special artists who delight in helping us see the world in a wonderfully different light. It's our job to help them reach a wider appreciative audience.

Industry Reviews
"Spectrum is my 'one-stop shopping' to see what's happening in the fantasy art world this year. It is exciting to see more and more diversity, both of the artists as well as in their styles. As a minority female working outside the mainstream style, this is very encouraging. Also as an art-school educator where the student body is becoming more diverse each year, I see that it's very inspiring for them. They aim to see their works in the annual not too far in the future, and so do I." -Yuko Shimizu

"Through its celebration of imaginative art, Spectrum has brought about a flowering of artistic ability and understanding across the world. It has helped to foster a pursuit of excellence in art, and the world is a brighter place for it." -Annie Stegg Gerard

"Each year I cannot wait to open the new Spectrum because I know that, inside, thousands of artists have pushed themselves to do the greatest work they've ever done in their lives for the book. I know that what I am about to see will move me, inspire me, terrify me and challenge me." -Justin Gerard

"Opening up a Spectrum annual is like stepping into a luxurious gallery. The experience will excite the minds of art enthusiasts, inspire the students of visual storytelling and keep the seasoned illustrators on their toes." -Gary Gianni

"Spectrum is a gloriously illustrated, lavishly produced, 300-page travel brochure for all the places the human imagination can take us." -Scott Gustafson

"Spectrum is like a city of implied worlds. Open any volume again, and you may find some secret door you had not noticed the last time-or the last several dozen times-you ventured there. I experience it as a means of transportation." -Forest Rogers

"With a hand to pull me into other worlds, a hand to push me to better myself and a hand to hold while walking the artists' road, Spectrum is my three-armed freak-of-a-friend." -Dug Stanat
