1. Faeries by Brian Froud and Alan Lee
This book is a classic. And I'm sure many fantasy artists have grown up loving Brian Froud's and Alan Lee's art.

2. Shadowline by Iain McCaig 
This book is fantastic for anyone who would like to improve their drawing skills. Iain McCaig's art is not only beautiful to look at, but you can learn a lot about art by reading this book.

3. The Art of Howl's Moving Castle
Movie art books are a great way to get inspired. Especially if you are searching for inspiration for backgrounds or colour schemes. 

4. Crimson Peak The Art of Darkness
Here's another fantastic movie art book for inspiration on colour and design. The amount of detail that went to designing Crimson Peak is sure to inspire you to create beautiful things as well!

5. Ivan Bilibin
There's no better way to learn illustration than to look at old masters' work. There are many classic artists that you can get inspiration from. One great example is Russian artist Ivan Bilibin. His use of colour and detail is just stunning.

Thank you for reading!
