Once again this years' Spectrum is even better. It contains the very best sci-fi and fantasy art to be found anywhere and includes work by all the top artists in the genre, and some you may never have heard of. The images are stunning ranging from book cover and comic illustrations to fine art and computer graphics. If you buy just one book on this type of art make it this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Maintaining the highest standards 20 April 2014
By wiredweird - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Year after year (we're into the twentieth as this is written), the Spectrum collections present the finest in that year's new fantasy and science fiction artwork. Familiar artists appear here, including Shaun Tan, Dave McKean, Ashley Wood, Brom, Charles Vess, and a pantheon of other names, familiar and not. The moods of the pieces differ as much as the artists themselves, Pollack's heroic "Country of the Blind" appears on the cover, but there's humor of "Aliens Among Us", the charm of "A Day at the Farmers' Market", or the eerie sensibility of Royo's "The Announcement." Whether you're looking for inspiration or simply enjoying the masterworks for themselves, you'll find plenty to like.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not To be Missed 3 April 2013
By Leonard James - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is one of the better of the older Spectrum issues. I really like the Petar Meseldzija cover (oh-oh, or was it Greg Manchess, whom I love equally?), which is a great introduction to what proved to be a beautiful book. I also appreciate that it is one of the last issues before digital illustration seemed to take over. I wish they would just come out with two separate issues: one for digital work and one for traditional media. I find myself always disappointed by finding something was done digitally (for speed, I guess), rather than by traditional means.
4.0 out of 5 stars Spectrum 8 6 Aug. 2013
By Philip F. Gelato - Published on Amazon.com

All of the Spectrum art anthologies are excellent. Spectrum 8 is not one of the best of the series, but worth buying none the less. The printing is excellent. My only complaint is that many of the paintings are printed small and are hard to view the details. I wish that the publishers would print less material and print all the art full page. Many of these issues can be purchased at a reasonable price use.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic collection! 21 Nov. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I just got my copy of "Spectrum 8". What a great collection of fantastic art. The series gets better with each volum and I like the fact that sculpture pieces is also included. I can spend and hours just observing the colors and details of the images, not to mention the fact that Moebius is finally recognized as 2001 Grandmaster. Well worth the price I paid for the hardcover. I don't need to mention much about the reproduction quality of the artwork, because it is superb. Enough said.
