THIS IS REAL!



Yes, we did receive the first test prints of the book!!!!!!! Here is the proof!
Shops should receive them in two to three weeks, and it will be published by TITAN in the UK, Exodyssey is going to be released at the good old "Forbidden planet" shops (which SB is a big fan of!).

Are prices known? :>

EDIT:

Ah, another question. Tell, how much of sketches/speedpaintings did you put in comparing to fully detailed illustration?

prices are available on amazon, at DSP and forbidden planet if you are in UK through titan books (just type exodyssey in google).
Tonic>> Hi Tonic, this is a concept-art book, so don't expect an illustration book ;) It would be very difficult to quantify sketches from illustrations as it is very subjective, and irrelevant when doing designs. We hope you'll enjoy!

Definitely will be buying this and posting a review on my blog as well.

Thx Parka, we are looking forward to see your reaction, it's difficult to be objective after such a long time spent on a project :)

My bad words, with illustrations, I meant the level of detail. I just kinda expect to see sketches/speedpaintings, but as you say, it's subjective, so I guess I have to see myself. Even if it's about concept and designs, I would love to see how you show them through quickies :)

Since I live in Poland, it would be wise to buy in UK shop, but I can't find (I admit, I'm newbie when it comes to buying outside my country) the online shop who sells hardcover version (some of shops sells only papercover) and accepts Paypal payment method (amazon.co.uk doesn't, unfortunately). As so far, I've found one shop (Barneys&Noble) who meets those two requirements, but it's located in USA. Does anyone know such UK shop?

it should be sold here too > http://www.forbiddenplanet.co.uk/index.php

Finally got a copy of the book, complimentary from DSP.

Great book, guys! Pretty amazing piece of effort and art!

My book review for Exodyssey is out on Parka Blogs.

Will be posting the review on Amazon as well. 5-stars.

Parka, thanks for the review, very professional job. If you are in L.A in may (9th), you are more than welcome to come over and meet the team! We will all be there for the signing. Everyone's welcome to join us!

Barontieri, the Fordbidden Planet's online shop has only paperback version - I couldn't find hardcover. But thanks, anyway.

I've ordered the book some time ago on amazon.com (.co.uk's hardcover was stated as "Currently unavailable" and there wasn't a price, nor release date).

I guess I will have to wait longer as UK must deliver books, then amazon deliver to my country, but, oh well, in the end I will have the book in my hands :)

But, tell me as I'm confused - is it already released? The online bookstores say it will be released in the May's last week, however Parka has already reviewed the book?

Tonic; the book should be arrived at Amazon already, we can not control the stocks so you are more than welcome to pressure Design Studio Press our publisher, this is their job. Thanks for the support and I hope you'll get your book soon!
