Book Description

6 Sep 1999

Published for the new millennium, this superbly illustrated showcase of the best in fantasy and SF art demonstrates the wealth and diversity of talent in this popular art form.

Dick Jude explores the range of fantasy, horror and SF art with 10 of the leading practitioners of the genre. Some of the brightest talents in the business provide a behind-the-scenes view of the creative processes involved, discuss their inspirations, frustrations and joys, and reveal how they bring their ideas to fruition. Whether created in watercolour or acrylics, with an airbrush or digitally with a computer, the results are stunning.

Fantasy Art of the New Millennium illustrates a broad spectrum of subject matter and technique – from the lyrical Tolkien landscapes of John Howe and Alan Lee, to the digitally created art of Steve Stone and Fred Gambino, and the spectacular science fiction images of Jim Burns.

Product Description

Amazon Review

Dick Jude is art director of Internet art gallery, Fantasia Online. Fantasy Art of the New Millennium is his first book and in it he has interviewed 10 very different artists working in the fields of science fiction, fantasy and horror. The book is divided into three sections, covering artists who work with traditional paint (Alan Lee, Don Maitz, John Howe, Brom), those who combine paint with digital technology (Jim Burns, Rick Berry, Chris Moore) and those who have moved completely into "The Digital Realm" (Steve Stone, Fred Gambino, Dave McKean). Approximately 13 pages are devoted to each artist, with Jude giving each ample space to describe their approach to their work, set against reproductions not only of finished pieces, but also of sketches, photographs and works in progress. The art is reproduced to a high standard, with vibrant colours, pin-sharp clarity and fine detail, while the text is genuinely fascinating.

The work ranges from traditional (though often very beautiful) book cover illustration, to more experimental art, with some surreal and disturbing pieces. Not everything here will appeal to everyone, most readers will love some of the work, being indifferent to or reacting against the remainder. Even so, the artist's words may often lead to reconsidering images we would otherwise dismiss without second thought, while the diversity of material proves the book successful in exploring the wide scope of contemporary SF and fantasy art. As such Fantasy Art of the New Millennium lives up to its own subtitle: The BEST in Fantasy and SF art worldwide. --Gary S. Dalkin

Format:Hardcover
Wonderful book, had this as a teenager. It inspired me to study illustration at uni. I'm
Now an art teacher. Sadly an ex student stole my copy do being able to find it on here at such a reasonable price was great. Book arrived in excellent condition apart from a little damage to the dust cover but I'd been warned about this earlier.
