“A book at least as epic as its subject.”
- “Fantasy Art is America’s least understood fine-art form.”
- “Calling this ‘a book’ is an absurd understatement. This is an overwhelmingly lavish and gorgeous tome, a giant of a volume, a beautifully presented canonical codex of imaginative realist art.”
“It was likely the first art you really enjoyed, discovered on a comic book, paperback, or record cover. You could almost feel the blood vessels expanding in your brain... absorbing the rich colors, the alien landscape, the idealized human figures.”
