Blizzard has a history of putting out some great art books for their franchises, some of which come in the various collector editions of their games. However, with a game so centered around art work like the digital card game of Hearthstone, we had yet to see anything coming from this franchise.
Available for pre-order on Amazon you will find the “The Art of Hearthstone” hardcover book authored by Robert Brooks and being published by Blizzard Entertainment. The book will be released on October 15, 2017 and currently retails for $45. With Amazon you do have the pre-order price guarantee so if it does go down in price by October 15th, that will be the price you end up paying.
The book will feature 288 pages and weighs in at 1.7 pounds. The book will be 11 x 1 x 10 inches. If you’ve handled any other previous Blizzard related art books, this seems to be roughly the same dimensions, weight, and number of pages we have seen. They make great coffee table books and it’s sure to be a great way to view your favorite card art in a bigger format that isn’t restricted by the little oval shaped images on the cards.

The book also tells the story of how Hearthstone came to be, growing from a small-team project to the worldwide success that it is today with more than 50 million players.
