Illumina, the Art of Jean Pierre Targete spotlights over 100 paintings, sketches and never-before seen conceptual drawings by one of science fiction and fantasy's most versatile young artists. Targete's three-dimensional rendering, his expressionistic lighting and magician's ability to lead the eye grant an impossible realism to speculative fiction's most outre subjects. Illumina will delight science fiction and fantasy fans with images of beauties and barbarians, pistol-packing aliens, racing starfighters, maniacal mages and dragons that burn the very air they breathe. At the same time, mystery and romance readers may find themselves surprised by Targete's contributions to their favourite genre.
