D&D isn't something I was into as a kid, and in fact I've only developed an interest as my own tween has become interested. This visual history was really fascinating, and I enjoyed seeing how the game and its art evolved into what it is today. ( )

Put me in the "loved it" category. Yes, in the final few pages there was quite a lot of "at last, we've achieved gaming rules perfection," but up until that point the authors seemed quite open-minded about the plusses and deficiencies of the company and its games throughout its history. And oh, the art!

It's a large book (both in size of each page and number of pages) so it can (a) display the art at a decent scale, and (b) show quite a lot of it, while (c) including enough text so that you do feel you're reading a history, and not merely viewing a coffee table book of pretty pictures.

I pretty much devoured the first half in a single (long) sitting, then polished off the rest in stolen moments over the next two days. There's no better compliment to a book than that I'd rather be reading it than anything else.

(Note: 5 stars = amazing, wonderful, 4 = very good book, 3 = decent read, 2 = disappointing, 1 = awful, just awful. I'm fairly good at picking for myself so end up with a lot of 4s). ( )

Sumptuous and well-written, this is an absolute gem of a book, a love letter from fanboys to the creators and inheritors of D&D and its many millions of players. ( )

Whether you're in it for the text or just the pretty pictures, this is a great read for any and all with exposure to D&D. As a relatively unexperienced player, I really enjoyed the completeness of the history of the game, and the modern fantasy industry in general.

Having grown up in the post 2000's, a veritable golden age of fantasy, some of the challenges faced by the initial game designers were baffling. What do you mean, you couldn't just google pictures of dragons? elves? D&D sold copyrights to shrinky dinks and viewfinders?

Outside of the artwork, this book also gives a solid understanding of the underlying canon of D&D lore. While I've played several home-brew campaigns, and am familiar with the 5th edition mechanics, the published worlds and lore were unknown. I enjoyed learning about their creation - as creative content and marketing campaigns - and how the original elements have kept through to today.

This massive tome delves into the history of D&D through its visual form: the stunning fantasy artwork throughout the years (though perhaps less stunning early on). The quality of the book itself is incredible. I bought the B&N exclusive edition and I forget how exactly it was supposed to vary from the standard, but I loved the color throughout and the fold-out pages that often had things like dungeon maps were a nice touch.

Dragonlance was my big obsession through my teens, and I was happy to see it given necessary attention--and especially that much of that went to Larry Elmore. I have adored his art since I was 12 and own a number of his prints. I was irked by mixed up character names at one point in the Dragonlance section (mix up Caramon and Tanis? How?!), but that was the only such error that stood out to me. ( )
