I know it's been out for a while now, but I just have to tell you how good The Art of Clint Langley is! It's a Black Library publication devoted to the CG artwork of the man himself.
Long time readers of this blog will already know that I am a long time fan of Clint's work, ever since his fully-painted stuff appeared in 2000AD, the Galaxy's Greatest Comic, many moons ago. For a long time now, Clint has contributed probably hundreds of illustrations (if not more) to Games Workshop products, whether novel covers, collectible card game art or comic strips.
He is well-known for the fantastic covers he has produced for a whole range of Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000 novels, including my very first novel The Dead and the Damned.
The text of the book (which is written by Clint himself along with various BL writers and editors) gives a greater insight into his work and his working methods. But the best thing about the book is that it is packed full of sumptuous Clint Langley images, which cover the whole range of the GW's intellectual properties.
To give you a taster, here are just a few of the choice morsels you will find inside. If you want to see more, and I'm sure you do, you can check out Clint's website here or, even better, buy the book here.
