Volume 18 is another great addition to the series. It's now 304 pages, slightly thicker than Spectrum 17. Available in either hardcover or paperback. Binding is great for a book this thick.
There are close to 500 pieces of art from different type of publications and purposes. Also included are some unpublished ones.
The Grand Master Award recipient is Ralph McQuarrie in this volume. He's the popular Star Wars artists. The winners for the Gold and Silver Awards are Ryohei Hase, Sam Weber, David Palumbo, Dan Dos Santos, Rebecca Guay, Joao Ruas, Kekai Kotaki, Tomasz Jedruszek, David Meng, Akihito, Android Jones, Brom, J.S. Rossbach and Scott Brundage. There are many other prominent and new artists featured.
For the quality of work represented, this book is a tremendous bargain for the money.
