Worlds - The Art of Raphaël Lacoste
Foreword by Ian Mc Que
Introduction by Sparth
|舌||English and French|
Worlds was originally a self-published book by Raphaël Lacoste and Patrice Leymarie, mostly intended for the North American market. After a successful crowdfunding campaign in early 2018 which reunited 1500 backers, the book was never reprinted nor distributed. But this mistake is about to be corrected!
In this book, Raphaël Lacoste shares a collection of his work over the last fifteen years, from the most iconic (Assassin’s Creed) to more personal projects, but also fantasy or sci-fi book covers he drew (for Bragelonne, Random House, Thor Books…), the concept-art he explored or even movie sets he worked on.
The difference between the original version and this new edition? A new cover, some text updates, but otherwise, the visual content is identical (note that the crowdfunding offered an exclusive box set).
All texts are written both in English and French.
