DUNGEONS & DRAGONS ART & ARCANA Offers an Exclusive First Look

Dungeons & Dragons Art & Arcana: A Visual History is a tome that rivals the most powerful spellbook in a wizard’s study. This is no simple art book. Authors Michael Witwer, Kyle Newman, Jon Petersen, and Sam Witwer have combined their lifetimes of love and experience with Dungeons & Dragons to create a comprehensive history of both the role-playing game and its legendary creators. Dungeons & Dragons Art & Arcana traces the world’s greatest role-playing game from its humble roots to the current popularity it’s enjoying today. From the Satanic Panic to Critical Role, the book is a complete history of ups and downs of a game that requires no board and no pieces, just a healthy imagination.The visual history does, of course, include all artwork you’ve dreamed of; the story of Dungeons & Dragons wouldn’t be complete without an examination of some of the incredible art and artists who have lent their considerable talents to showing players how inventive new creatures like a beholder or hippogriff would appear. Dungeon maps, creatures, box artwork, even advertisements from the 1970s and beyond are all included as vital parts of the game’s history in one spectacular collection.Take a look at these exclusive images from the comprehensive tome.
