cool ive always wanted this book. hopefully they have it at my bookstore.
I snuck into Borders like a ninja and stealthily ripped off the shrink wrap so I could look at my pictures Highly recommended - not for my stuff, but for all the other excellent work.
I didn't buy it because I'm poor

Either PM your current address or email me through the Spectrum website [ spectrumfantasticart.com ] and we'll see you get your copy. 3/4 of the artist copies have been mailed already (yours is in the batch): the P.O. doesn't forward Media [Book] Rate, so let us know where and we'll take care of you.
A BIG box is about to go out the door to Massive Black.
Picked mine up yesterday. Best ever does indeed sum it up.
I'm just wondering what they could do for 15?
I totally agree, this edition is just so top notch. Arnie, Cathy, and the hard working crew at the Spectrum headquarters continually bring the best art book to market and show how much they truly care not just about the art and the artists but the consumers as well.
Thanks again you guys, your dedication is inspiring.

No kidding, there are so many great pieces this time around. Lots of Last Man Standing entries too, warms my heart. Picking up 14 made me also realize that my Spectrums 1-13 are causing a nice little bow in my bookshelf... thank you Mr. Fenner for destroying my bookcase!
Seriously, the release of Spectrum every year has become an event for me. Thanks for putting together such a great book year after year.
the Barnes and Nobles in Boston (around the Medical Center) had it out in a fairly prominent spot with other new releases. been hounding the mailman for my copy.
thanks for an awesome book Arnie. And thanks to Cathy and the rest of the people involved.
mine just left it sitting out on my front stoop! Luckily it didn't grow legs and walk off before I found it there. And that is why I don't trust the postal service in South Phillybeen hounding the mailman for my copy
Thanks to everyone for all the kinds words! I wish Cathy and I could take credit for it, but it's all the participating artists and the jury that are responsible: we're just directing traffic.
just got mine today from amazon. inCREDIBLE. every page i was freaking enamored.
congrats to everyone, you guys who compiled the works and the artists who made them. i feel like i've seen 30% of them on CA too :p
the book's a must buy
My local Borders "says" (via online inventory check) that it has at least ONE copy - but it just ain't there when I check for it.
Gonna have to go to Bud Plant (online) as usual....which isn't a bad thing, as long as I buy JUST THIS ONE book. I seem to buy more ...everytime I shop there.
I Received my copy a few days ago, and man it made my day. !!
I agree, It's the best Spectrum yet. I can't stop looking through it.
Never thought about that! In the sci fi/fantasy section there is a group of previous Spectrum books - sadly, no 14. But will check out this other section!
And if it ain't there - to Bud Plant I go.
(and thank you!)
I haven't gotten mine yet Has anyone in europe gotten their copy yet?
I'm stoked as hell and always run to the Door/mailbox... its like early christmas but without a set date.
