For hundreds of years artists have been inspired by the imaginative potential of fantasy. Unlike science fiction, which is based on fact, fantasy presents an impossible reality-a universe where dragons fly, angels battle demons, and magicians weave spells. Published to coincide with a major exhibition, this handsome volume reveals how artists have brought to life mythology, fables, and fairy tales, as well as modern epics like the Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, and Final Fantasy.

Written by leading historians of the field, Enchanted traces the development of fantasy art from Old Masters like Bosch, Dürer, and Henry Fuseli, through Golden Age illustrators like Arthur Rackham and Howard Pyle, to classic cover artists like Frank Frazetta and Boris Vallejo, and emerging talents like Anna Dittmann and Heather Edwards. More than 150 key works-including paintings, prints, drawings, and digital art-are illustrated in vibrant color, many at full-page size.

Enchanted is a must-have reference for artists and illustrators, and a delight for all lovers of fantasy.

Jesse Kowalski is Curator of Exhibitions at the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts and curator of Enchanted: A History of Fantasy Illustration.

Hardcover: 256 pages.
