I'm going to do this review picture by selected picture, as it IS an art book, and the art is what really makes this stand out.
Standard cover and special boxed set.
Box cover of the Special Edition. It really is special and pops in person more than this photo shows.
Cover of the Special Edition book.
I love the classic ads.
I realize now that I never had the "orange spine" releases of the core AD&D 1e books. Otherwise, I'd have this complete collection.
I have some of these colored covers, but not many.
Lots of frameable posters in the Special Edition.
So, my final score? To (poorly) quote Nigel from Spinal Tap, "this goes to ELEVEN, and eleven is a larger number than ten."
Get it. Seriously.
I think the piece you couldn't remember was part of the DM Screen for 3.0ReplyDelete
Looks amazing. I'm eager to get my hands -- and eyes -- on this!ReplyDelete
They couldn't find a way to store the posters flat so there is no fold in it?!ReplyDelete
If it's not folded it's not a poster, it's an art print ;-)Delete
After reading this post last night, I went to Amazon and they were selling the Special Edition for $56.12 and was down to the last one. I jumped on that and can't wait to get it.ReplyDelete
I've been eyeing this quite hungrily for a week or so now, especially the collector's edition, and plan to have it on my coffee table in the next couple of weeks!ReplyDelete
