The official description for The Art of Blizzard states:
"Over the past two decades, Blizzard Entertainment has had a tremendous impact on the world of games and global pop culture. From its humble beginnings as a three-person console-game development studio in 1991 to the creation of the blockbuster Warcraft, StarCraft, and Diablo series, Blizzard has a history of crafting stunning worlds of science fiction and fantasy. The company’s distinctive gameplay and storytelling styles have captivated an international audience numbering in the tens of millions whose passion cannot be quelled.
Twenty years after Blizzard opened its doors, the company’s World of Warcraft boasts the title of the world’s most popular subscription-based massively multiplayer online role-playing game, and the studio is widely recognized as one of the leaders in creatively driven game development.
An epic volume of art and behind-the-scenes insights, The Art of Blizzard celebrates the studio’s genesis by examining the creative forces behind these games and showcasing their artistry through more than 700 pieces of concept art, paintings, and sketches. Commentary on the art is provided by Blizzard Entertainment’s own Nick Carpenter, Sam Didier, and Chris Metzen, who’ve each played important roles in shaping Blizzard’s game universes over the years."
The reviews for this latest edition art copy are fantastic as well, some of our favourite reviews can be seen below:
"This book is awesome if you're a fan of Blizzard's games you're gonna love this book.
It goes through art work of early Warcraft up into WOW and Starcraft along with Diablo. From really nice
finished renders to beautiful concept sketches and all roughs included.
If you're an artist, this is a great book for reference as well, lots of art from a variety of characters and races.
This is a book that cant be missed."
"I own literally every "Art of" book produced by Blizzard, and somehow this incredible tome manages to showcase so much art I have not seen before! I was skeptical that this book would just repeat what I already owned, but instead it had a vast amount of new material by my favorite Blizzard artists.
The book is massive in size and the paper and printing is as high quality as the artwork within. I highly recommend purchasing this book."
