As a follow-up to last year's Art of Hearthstone book, the Art of Hearthstone: Year of the Kraken has released!
The new hardcover art book features 144 pages of art from Whispers of the Old Gods, One Night in Karazhan, and Mean Streets of Gadgetzan, making it almost half as long as the original book that came out last November which was 240 pages. If you're into gaming art books, happen to be a fan of Hearthstone and like to see art from the development process, this seems like a no-brainer at $21 USD.
Something stirs in the dark . . . The second volume of The Art of Hearthstone dives deep into the depths of the Year of the Kraken, the first year of Hearthstone’s standard format.
Consisting of hundreds of illustrations from the corruptive cults of Whispers of the Old Gods, the glamourous disco of One Night in Karazhan, and the turf wars of Means Streets of Gadgetzan, this book goes into detail about the Hearthstone team’s artistic process for card art, game boards, and other visual designs, while also exploring the challenges and triumphs of creating a game enjoyed by millions upon millions of players around the globe.

I can vouch for the awesomeness of the first book, so I'll definitely be picking up the second. It was really great to see all the lovely art in the flesh printed in high quality! Here are the preview images of the new art book.
