Art of the DragonLance Saga Softover TSR8447 A Vintage First Print TSR Art Book Based on the Works of Tracy Hickman & Margaret Weis, Good/Good
The Art of the Dragonlance Saga is a 128-page perfect-bound softcover book chock full of amazing DragonLance Art
This excellent book was based on the works of Tracy Hickman and Margaret Weis. It was edited by Mary Kirchoff and was published by TSR in 1987.
DragonLance is a great setting if you are looking for something a little bit different. Dragons have recently come back to the world and your characters will be counting their steel instead of gold.
The DragonLance adventure modules are a great introduction to learning how to DM. There are lots of hints and tips throughout the modules. This art book gathers much of the early DragonLance artwork in one book. Even if you are not a fan of DragonLance it still has great Sword and Sorcery images.
A memorable passage from The Art of the Dragonlance Saga explains the saga's birth in 1984:
"The god who began to envision the possibility of this world in his mind was the God of Marketing. This god ascended from his mighty throne one day in early 1983 and announced that he had done a survey. And, according to the survey, people who played the DUNGEONS & DRAGONS game wanted more dragons."
And more dragons they got. The prolific and extraordinarily popular writing duo of Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman produced a veritable treasure trove of books telling of the heroic exploits and dastardly deeds of the denizens of their fantasy world. The Art of the Dragonlance Saga, long out of print, collects all the art from the novels, calendars, and game products that the God of Marketing created. This is an extremely rich collection, with sketches, paintings, drawings, and studies of beloved characters and settings. It is also full of artist's notes, character development, and explanations of the ways in which the books and the art coevolved. A must-have for Dragonlance fans, The Art of the Dragonlance Saga is also wonderful eye candy for all swords and sorcery fans.
This book is in Good condition showing some wear. The cover shows moderate corner rounding, heavy creasing along the fold, and heavy creasing in a few other places. There are some light scratches. The inside is very clean. A few of the pages have creases or folds and there are two pages that have tears about an inch and a half long. It is still sturdy and the artwork is gorgeous.
