The pieces FINALLY come together! Little, Brown announced today that The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide by Stephenie Meyer will come out April 12, 2011! This definitive encyclopedic reference to the Twilight Saga is the only official guide and is full color throughout all 500+ pages, including nearly 100 illustrations and photographs. The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide will be released in hardcover for $24.99 and also be available as an e-book.
The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide comes with exclusive new material and everything you need to further explore the unforgettable world Stephenie created in Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, Breaking Dawn and The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner. The Guide also includes character profiles, outtakes, a conversation with Meyer, genealogical charts, maps, extensive cross-references, and much more. How cool is that?
And you know how awesome those illustrations were in Twilight: The Graphic Novel, Volume 1? That illustrator, Young Kim, did several new illustrators for the Guide along with a bunch of other artists.
What does Stephenie have to say about the Guide? “I’m always amazed at how many in-depth questions my readers have about my characters and the world within The Twilight Saga. With The Official Illustrated Guide, I hoped we could incorporate as many details as possible, including character histories, like Alice’s back story. I’m thrilled with the different artistic interpretations done by Young Kim and the other talented illustrators, including Bella’s wedding dress. I hope the fans feel it was worth the wait!”
So what do you guys think — are you ready for the Guide?
