From official release/information:
Cover Story: The Art of John Picacio is a coffee table book, you know the kind that people put out for company to leaf through if they get bored with the conversation. But, this isn't that kind of book. No, you'll leaf through over and over again to renew that sense of wonder you got as a youngster reading your first SF or fantasy novel. Remember that feeling that something wonderful was or was about to happen -- the expectation that something was different or would be soon? Maybe that was just me. But if you remember that feeling, you can get it back as you turn page after page and come to art that runs from SF, fantasy, horror, weird, pulp, polished, rough -- but each work is unique and somehow makes you just sit and stare in wonder at the forms, colors, and the emotion.
