The Art of Dreamfall: The Longest Journey (Hardcover)

The Art of Dreamfall: The Longest Journey (Hardcover) - Ragnar Tørnquist,  Christer Sveen Now that I'm busy playing the game, I can put the imagery from this book in perspective. Thankfully, the final result of the landscapes and characters in the game is just as beautiful as many of the concept sketches in this book. Therefore, the book, a small but sturdy hardcover, is a nice companion to Dreamfall, as a way to get immersed in the atmosphere even more. The introductions are nice, but perhaps some comments on the images themselves here and there would have been nice.
