This is actually a style guide in disguise. Yes, the thing that artists and freelancers get before a set comes out, explaining the high points, locations, creatures and major characters to build a world upon? This is exactly that, except two blocks worth of material, James Wyatt's roleplaying polished writing, fiction writing and double page spreads.
If you even have a passing interest in Magic's art enough to buy a print at a Grand Prix or online from an artist, you will love this book. It's actually rather inexpensive for how utterly enormous it is at 10"x11" and over 200 pages. If you have a coffee table, this begs to be opened.
It's worth the money and considering it's been seventeen years since the last iteration, expectations were high. Buy it, you will like it.
The only complaint I could see someone having is that it's not strictly an art book, instead having a rather large amount of text similar to the "Planeswalker's guide to the multiverse" features on the MTG website. I don't mind this, as I love both the art and flavor of Magic's worldbuilding and feel they greatly compliment each other in this package.
This book is easily worth MSRP, and is a steal at the Amazon price.
It deserves every star since I am all of those.
While the geographical section of the book tends to run a little long, the storyline section condenses the entire plot of the sets into a quick synopsis that's easier to digest than going back and reading the game's tie-in novels or weekly short stories.
This is a must-have if you're a Magic fan, and there are compelling reasons to get a copy if you're a fan of imaginative realism art as a whole.
Whether you're a concept artist like me or you just love the stories and want to learn more about the Magic universe, this book is absolutely perfect. Can't wait for the next one!

High quality printing. However, since it was called an art book, I would have expected more full page art and just more artwork in general. Read morePublished 6 days ago by Amazon Customer
This is a great book for both Magic the Gathering players and fantasy art lovers. Also, since it's Wizards of the Coast, it could make good source material for a D&D campaign. Read morePublished 10 days ago by Clinton
This is just a great book. A cool addition to your coffee table. And I am using it as a basis for my own D&D game, even though it is not an official role playing accessory.Published 18 days ago by Michael Ruch
