Review

I have several art books based on video games and this is one of the best in my collection.  It is large, printed on quality stock with detailed illustrations, art, and photos.  The slip case adds value, not only with looks, but functionality.  The commentary is really done quite well including the voice of many of the artists.  Fans of the game, or anyone who appreciates fine concept art, will want to have a copy of this book.  Also, if you want to have a deeper understanding of what goes into Thief, then this book is for you!  It is a quality book that you will want to display.
