A short while ago we did a small article on a new book from Blizzard called The Art of World of Warcraft. Published by Egmont, the book showcases a visual journey into the history of Blizzard’s mammoth gaming world. It features interviews with key developers and goes on to cover the complete story of World of Warcraft’s artistic evolution and shows the journey through conception to realisation that gives World of Warcraft it’s unique artistic style.
The book also covers a collection of never before seen concept art from the current expansion in the Warcraft universe, Warlords of Draenor. It’s a fantastic addition to the collection for any World of Warcraft hardcore fan and is available to buy on Amazon. Not only does the book evoke fond memories of places visited and times spent in the game but offers the reader new ways of looking at places they have seen before in the form of concept drawings and sketches. It doesn’t just appeal to Warcraft fans either, if you’re into fantasy art then it offers some of the finest examples around at the moment.
You can get a sneak peak of some of the pages from the book on Egmont’s site here.
