Today I received my "Art of Tomb Raider" book which I won in music contest at IndyCroft.com few months ago. It's not actually one book, but two, with concepts/artworks, characters etc from past TR games. Volume I is focused on Core design era (TR1 to AOD) and Volume II is based on the Trilogy. It's really a great book :)

Strange how the Volume 1 book spine is half the size of Volume 2's, when there's twice the amount of games.

Maybe because Crystal have more material from their own games. They could have been restricted by what they could use from Core's games.

Well done on winning, Only TR Lover :D. And thanks for showing off...I mean...sharing those pics with us :p

Congrats, you are so lucky to have it!
I have wanted this book so badly, since I first time heard about it!!! But my parents donŽt want to buy it for me because of the shipping to Europe. I still hope IŽll buy it one day by myself, though.
Anyway, enjoy your book!:)

Yeah, just make a thread to rub it in, why don't you? Soooo jelly! ;__; I'd thought these would of run out of stock by now. Even though you did win in it in a comp, but still. :p

I remember ages ago someone posted a picture of one of the early TR1 artworks and Lara was holding a bow in it. YES, A BOW! LIKE IN THE NEW TR! I can't find that damn picture anymore, though. :I That artwork must be pretty rare.

I've seen a few Youtube videos where folks go through the two volumes page by page, but I'd still love to have one. Enjoy it. :)

I had seen that sketch way before...it seemed to me there were only some rare arts not seen from Crystal, but most of the Core stuff had already been out.

Although I'd know this a lot better if the one I ordered actually arrived.

Yes. That one is in the book. It's unused Valentines day card or something like that. There's also a sketch of Lara crushing a heart with her boot. Lara obviously hated Valentine's day. :-)

Which is ironic, considering her birthday was (is?) on Valentine's day. :vlol:

So, it was for a Valentine's day card, eh? I was thinking it was early game concepts. :I

Which is funny because it's her birthday, and everyone here seems to love it. :p
