The Art of The Last of Us
If you haven’t already read our review of The Last of Us or of the The Last of Us: American Dreams, you should totally do that. After you play and fall in love with the game, you should also get The Art of The Last of Us (HC). The book is 184 pages of lush, beautiful drawings and sketches, including concept art, character designs, and settings, along with interesting notes and a forward by Neil Druckman, the creative director and Bruce Straley, the game director.
As someone who really enjoyed the beauty of the game, I’m in love with this book, and I also love getting all of the little tidbits of inside information from reading it. Remember, there are spoilers for the game inside, so don’t read it before playing! Get your copy of The Art of The Last of Us here.
The Art of Remember Me
Remember Me is another game that we recently reviewed, and I also got my hands on the Art of Remember Me book. I liked the game a bit more than our reviewer, so I was thrilled to check out the art book.
Again, this book is really worth your money if you loved the style of the game. I quite enjoyed it and can’t get enough of Nilin’s design, so I’m very happy with it. Where The Last of Us has art that is mostly an overgrown city, Remember Me has beautiful, clean, sharp designs.

What do you think about video game art books? Do you get them for the information, the behind the scenes art, or both? Share your thoughts in the comments!
