The works from this series, Imaginary Places 1994-1999, depict fictional locations taken from the book The Dictionary of Imaginary Places by Alberto Manguel and Gianni Guadalupi. Drawing upon world literature, the titles themselves are incredibly imaginative and captivating. Some examples are, Figlefia, Limanora, Swoonarie, Spectralia, or East Euralia.

As creative as the entire series and the titles are, the physicality of the works are equally as inventive. The compositions come in all different forms: rectangular, squared, circular, or even elliptical. The color palette he uses per piece is electric and playful while the shapes incorporated are increasingly graphic and distorted. For an artist incredibly gifted in innovations in terms of technique in his print making process, he adds the use of Bronze. Imaginary Places proves to be a later body of complex work where Frank Stella incorporates spontaneity and innovation.
