I thought Sierra threw out most of their old art in the late 1990s. I remember seeing some go for crazy amounts on ebay... Any idea how much of it they got hold of for this book? It'd be a bit dull if it were mostly screenshots.

I was reading about this yesterday, it looks very good. I think the same fans who bought the eBay art way back probably provided the scans for this book

I know both gentlemen who are putting this book together. I've been anticipating this project for a few years now. Nice to see it finally coming to fruition.

I'm in for this. It should be superbly better than Rogue Leaders, much more focused on why people by the books (for the behind the scenes stuff and for first party games, although it seems Dynamix is in there, which is great. Wouldn't mind any Coktel Vision either).

So basically this will be what Rogue Leaders should have been. Looks outta sight.
