It's a retrospective looking back at his past artworks, from the 90s to the present day. You can see that even back in the early years, his paintings are already quite refined, and he gets better over the years.
All the paintings are wonderfully reproduced in high resolution. The bulk of them are printed one of each page in this large hardcover artbook. There are 208 pages so there's easily more than a hundred paintings, all of them character based art in his dark fantasy style. It also includes the paintings from his written books The Child Thief,Plucker and Krampus: The Yule Lord.
There are a few pages on his childhood, art schooling days and early career. He also talks about those three written books. I feel that some bits in the middle of the timeline is missing, probably because most of the paintings don't come with additional commentary.
Interestingly, this book is from a Kickstarter project in 2012. The target was $12,000 and in the end $235,000 plus was raised with over 2000 plus backers. That says something about how well his work is regarded. It's great that the extra books are selling outside of Kickstarter.
The Art of Brom is It's an amazing collection of more than 20 years of work.

When it comes to enjoying each page, I am impressed at the depth, richness, and clarity of each painting. (Ten minutes of enjoying going through book, now back to the review.) Bonus is a glimpse behind the oil: about Brom's path and also his process. There's so much here to enjoy, over and over again and the attention to detail and production quality of this book makes it an easy pleasure.
