Product description


The first collection of work from this highly-respected artist and illustrator Includes a breathtaking selection of artworks from spaceships, stars and galaxies, to the heroes and heroines of futuristic worlds Chapter introductions by leading SF artists and authors, including Jim Burns, Chris Moore, Robert Sawyer, David Brin and Elizabeth Moon Acclaimed for his mastery of digital imagery, Gambino's work is instantly recognizable - from covers for the Foundation series of novels by Isaac Asimov to works by luminaries such as David Brin, William Shatner, Ray Bradbury and Elizabeth Moon. Inspired initially by Gerry Anderson, Gambino first hand-made his hardware as small-scale sculptures, photographing them and creating the futuristic images that have almost become his trademark. He is now acclaimed for his mastery of digital imagery, creating such diverse images as the stunning 'Heaven's Reach' to the sensuous figure of flight in 'Nightwings'. Ground Zero brings together worlds of unearthly contradictions in this single volume.
