IDW had previously published this book with a different cover in 2009, Ashley Wood's Art Of Metal Gear Solid. The 2011 edition sports a white cover but the content is the same. It's now available at a saner price as the earlier edition is out of print.
Ashley Wood's art is still loud and dramatic.

The book I have is a white paperback cover instead of the brown one shown on Amazon (left image), not that it makes any difference.
It collects art from Ashley Wood's graphic novel adaptations of Metal Gear Solid and Metal Gear Solid: Sons of Liberty. Additionally, it also has art created for the Metal Gear Solid: Mobile Portable Ops video game.
Here are some keywords to be associated with the book: big guns, long legs, crazy brushstrokes, stylish portraits, no captions.
Fans of Ashley Wood's style and Metal Gear Solid might want to take a look at this book.

When I received my book, I realized that, much like fellow Amazon user Parka, I too had a white cover. However, I've realized that I enjoy that cover better than I do the one displayed on the Amazon info page.
The book is 120 pages of, as I said, the finest work Ashley Wood has ever done (in my opinion). The pictures are semi-split into "sections".. For instance when you see a picture of Solid Snake, the next few pages are more than likely going to include pictures of Solid Snake. The way the book itself is, is great. The size of it is great, larger than a normal book.. The only way I can desribe the size is that it's about the same size of a video game strategy guide.
The cover, while not hard, isn't paper thin either. It's very sturdy, and could probably hold up to normal wear and tear fairly well (only time will tell, though). The pages inside are also fairly thick, and don't show finger-prints or anything of the things fellow art book aficionados fear. The pictures come through vibrant, clear, and even the pictures that have been "resized" to fit the page length look brilliant.
Say you have no idea what Metal Gear Solid is, nor have heard of the comics, yet you're a fan of Ashley Wood? I would tell you to pick this book up, because as I've said, in my honest opinion it is Ashley's finest work. However, to the fans of the comics, and even the fans of just the game? This is a must-have for your book shelf. The size, image quality, and price are all great. You will not regret it, and you will come back to look at it time and time again.
