Spectrum 10: The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art (Spectrum: The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art) (No. 10)

Looking at fantasy art is a great way to inspire ideas for writing a fantasy novel. Check out awesome illustrations on dragons, fairies, castles, and a variety of mythical creatures with the Spectrum series. Spectrum allows you to look at a variety of art and artists. I often look through these books for story ideas. As an artist, these books also inspire me to draw fantasy (although I am far from being a professional fantasy artist). What do you like to do to get inspiration for writing a fantasy novel?
