I’ve mentioned this before, but I have to reiterate: I love seeing concept art behind my favorite games and movies. There’s something almost magical about how designers can translate concepts into reality for the screen. So when I heard about THE ART OF DEAD SPACE and how it would cover all three games, I knew I had to see it. The fine folks at Titan planned the release of this book to coincide with the release of the third game in the series, and it is a perfect compliment to the epic horror franchise.

If you are not familiar with THE ART OF DEAD SPACE, here is the description courtesy of Titan Books:

THE ART OF DEAD SPACE is the ultimate gallery of the Dead Space universe, with over 300 images, sketches and concept art pieces by acclaimed game artists showcasing breathtaking spacescapes to terrifying Necromorphs, character designs to creating an in-game religion, plus commentary from the artists. Includes art from the entire Dead Space video game franchise.

If you’re a gamer, this book is a Must Own item. As a huge fan of the series, I am glad to own this beautiful coffee-table book. But aside from the lavish graphics, readers will get some in-depth and behind-the-scenes information only available here.

My favorite aspect of THE ART OF DEAD SPACE is that it covers the whole series and everything within the universe. This includes characters, creatures, landscapes and locations, vehicles, scenery, and even outer space. The scope of this book is stunning and the information provided is very comprehensive.
