CFSL.NET: Café Salé Artbook 02

This review is applicable for the other volumes of Café Salé art books.

Café Salé or CFSL is a web portal created for the French art community in 2002. It has over tens of thousands of members from different backgrounds, skill sets and interests. There are professionals as well as undiscovered talent. More than a hundred artists have put together their illustrations in this 302-page paperback.

There are three main categories: scenes, characters and miscellaneous. The variety of artistic style is amazing. We have sci-fi background paintings, comic-style art, sketches, fan art, loads of characters in different settings, worlds, and many more. Most of the illustrations are digitally created, not that it affects anything. All are printed gloriously on low gloss paper, making every page a pleasure to look at.

At the end is the index of artists featured, along with their contact information and website. I've contemplated typing out their websites here but there are just too much. You can check out their artist galleries at Café Salé.

This is an illustration annual comparable in standard to those put out by Spectrum, Digital Art Masters and Ballistic Publishing. It makes you wish that there are more online art communities coming up with art books like this.

This book is beautiful and inspirational. Most highly recommended.

Hi Parka! I follow your blog

Hi Parka!

I follow your blog daily and just wanted to shout out that I love the reviews you do. :)

Anyways, I would like to ask, how do I go about purchasing a book that's solely in France? Can I use the french amazon homepage?

Also, are they very rare? Since the price is very high.

Thanks so kindly,
Amanda

I just got all four of these

I just got all four of these from the amazon.fr website with no problem. They arrived without damage and pretty quickly for a series of books traveling from France to Florida. The price is in euros and with the cost of shipping across the Atlantic they are fairly pricey. Only three were available from Amazon and the fourth one I bought from a private seller. Now if only I could figure out how to leave feedback on the site..
