Halo: The Art Of Building Worlds

Charting the glorious decade that spans Halo: Combat Evolved to Halo: Reach, Halo: The Great Journey is a lavish and spectacular review of ten years of groundbreaking game art brought together in one place as never before. Halo: The Great Journey is the ultimate gallery of the Halo universe - from characters to weapons and much more; with sketches and concept art by acclaimed artists such as Ashley Wood, the detailed interiors and sweeping landscapes of Alex Chu, and Frank Capezzuto's breathtaking spacescapes. In addition there is art from Halo: Legends - the anime DVD - book covers, comic pages, marketing images and more; plus an introduction from "the face of Halo," Frank O'Connor. A celebration of visual splendor - from the Spartans themselves to the breathtaking vistas of dawn breaking on an alien world - Halo: The Great Journey is dramatic, grandiose and utterly awesome.

"Totally breath-taking." - io9"This is a book that deserves huge recognition. Not only is the subject matter one of the most important gaming franchises to ever hit our machines, it also has life, colour and soul bouncing from every page combined with words from people that have lived and breathed Halo. It’s a book that could grace any shelf or coffee table and become a talking point. In fact it’s worth buying a coffee table just for this book." - This Is Xbox"Halo: The Art of Building Worlds is simply magnificent in production and content. Even this reviewer, who is not a fan of the series, cannot help but be blown away by the sheer beauty of this book." - Square Go"A compelling visual tour of this extraordinary universe." - School Library Journal"Simply put, this book is a must have for every Halo fan." - The Daily Blam"...a breathtaking window into the creation of one of gaming’s most imaginative universes. With a near perfect blend of expansive art pieces, rich backstory, and entertaining anecdotes, the book is a worthy tribute to Microsoft’s juggernaut franchise." - Piki Geek"If you're any kind of Halo fan, it's an absolute treat and an essential must have." - CVG"A glorious celebration of Halo." - Xboxer 360"...the kind of art book that you can get lost in..." - SciFi Mafia"A brilliantly compiled graphic history." - Gamer Wok
