Pre-Order Deposits Now Closed

A lot has been happening, but here are the more salient points. Pre-orders are now closed. Don't worry, books are still available, but now you've got to pay the full Pre-Order Price of $110US. The price will increase to $125US once we go to print which should be at the end of the month. So if you haven't ordered, we urge you now.

The Dreams and Visions Press Web site has been reworked and has some sample pages of the Tomb Raider Book. A bit higher res than this blog will allow. Have a look around, there might be something else that might tickle your fancy.

In addition, we finally printed out the entire book, all 550+ pages, and also received a sample slip-case from the printer. I must admit, even after years of working on this project, holding the full color pages in your hands for the first time is an unbelievable feeling. It really looks and feels amazing. I can't wait to see the final product. It will be a great Christmas present.

Exclusive Lettered Edition Update - Only 5 copies of the limited edition are left. Price is still undetermined but will range from $400US to $800US. The Lettered Edition (26 copies, A to Z) will include two original sketches from Tomb Raider Artists - one each from Angel of Darkness artist James Kenny and Legend, Anniversary, and Underworld artist Daniel Cabuco. These are original, signed sketches. They are not prints, or copies. You will be the proud owner of a one-of-a-kind, signed piece of Tomb Raider art. To order one of these, please go to the Dreams and Visions Website and purchase one of the standard editions, then send us an email to get on the Lettered Edition List. Remember, there are only 5 remaining.

W00t, an update! \o/ Great news that the book is finished. Do we have a cover yet? :D

December can't come fast enough.

Oh man this is looking good. I was really stoked with the new spreads previewed on the site - I LOVE storyboards and environmental art, often more than character stuff - but these character spreads that you've previewed here are even more awesome! I love these layouts we've seen - minimal text captioning the images, and all the images are presented large - nothing is too small. It must be so gratifying - as you mention - holding a printed copy of all the pages and seeing how the whole thing has come together. It really is the final stretch, and even though December seems far away, it's really just around the corner!

There were three days left and then I was going to poke the previous post again for an update. LOL


New teases ftw. Thanks for the update and the new site looks great! It's going to be a very merry Christmas. :)

Looking forward to this.

Awesome, I can't wait to pick this up!
The price on the Lettered edition is a *bit* steep, but I've been a fan of Dan Cabuco's work for a while....I'm tempted to shell out the $$$ for the custom sketch alone.

So... is that the final cover art (on the main website)? It looks awesome. *_*

If we already put the $55 deposit down, can we send the other half any time? Or do we have to wait for something specific? Can we go through the website? Or should we go through Paypal again?

Christmas is coming and I'd like for you to take my money while I actually have it. :)

Dunno if you got the email or not but the shipping date has been pushed back to sometime in January and they'll be sending out email asking for the rest of the deposit well before then.

Joy joy joy!
