Amazing art book, whether you've played the game or not! Very beautifully designed and well put together. Especially great if you're already a fan of the book like I was. More than worth the money, I'm actually surprised that the book is as cheap as it is, it's very impressive and it's interesting to hear all of the artists influences and reasoning behind the art. Alice has never seemed more creepily amazing. Definitely recommend this to anyone who loves the game or just appreciates great art!
I received my copy yesterday and I'm at a loss for words. The amount of detail to the artwork is absolutely amazing. The book outlines various concept and final arts that went into the game and it also gives you plenty of insight as to what to expect from the game when it comes out. No spoilers involved, more or less just detailing some of the enemies and also showcasing some enemies and odds and ends that have been omitted from the game. The book is simply amazing, hopefully the game will be too, but after checking out the book I have no doubt in my mind. I originally purchased the book merely to support the cause; now I can't put it down. Even people that aren't into video games or anything related have been wowed by it. Almost want to buy another and shrink wrap it, this will definitely become a collector's item.
Wonderfully dark is best described for these games. Loved he first game for the art style, tone and voice acting, I was excited there was a sequel. There are some interesting concept art. And some that are just insanely dark to pretty. Like the two full page of the ship bottle and the night sky in the background. Beautiful. This would make a really good movie. If only... If you like the games or a darker Alice in Wonderland then you'll like this.
I bought this book as a next best thing for my computer games and art absessed teenager. She's too young to play the mind twisting game. What a find! It's filled with most beautiful art, which gave both her and me endless hours of exploration and inspiration for creating own drawings. After watching Tim Burton's movie I didn't think anybody can come with better vision of Alice in Wonderland. Well, this one surpasses everything else I've ever seen or imagined. The edition is stunning, it can go easily on top of my stack on the coffee table. Highly recommended for any art lover or computer games graphics afficionado.
