The Art of Blizzard
Blizzard has announced a new art book, scheduled to come out later this month. At over 350 pages long, it has a wide array of artwork from Blizzard games, including artwork from unpublished projects that has not previously been released. The Art of Blizzard Entertainment info at Amazon.com lists the release date as January 29. Commentary on the art is provided by Blizzard's Nick Carpenter, Sam Didier, and Chris Metzen.

Jump past the break for more details on the book, and a promotional event in Southern California near Blizzard.

Just a few weeks from now will see the official release of The Art of Blizzard book, published by Insight Editions. The Art of Blizzard is a superbly high-quality tome dedicated to presenting and preserving the visual history of Blizzard and our Warcraft, StarCraft, and Diablo franchises. With over 350 pages and nearly 800 individual pieces, including a never-before-seen look into some of our unpublished projects, this will certainly be a must-have collector's item to adorn even the most discerning of bookshelves and coffee tables.

In addition, Nucleus will be among the first to offer advanced copies of The Art of Blizzard book for sale. Supplies will be limited, so guests should come early to secure their copy. Several of our artists will be in attendance giving painting demos, signing books, and meeting with attendees.

If you have the means, we hope to see you there, and if not we'll let you know as soon as the book officially launches and where you can order or pick up your own copy.
