Review

"This tome invites the reader through every stage of the evolution of this wonderful game, engaging with incredible art, enlightening photos, and insightful anecdotes that both inform and inspire. Whether you got to experience the birth of DUNGEONS & DRAGONS and want to relive that origin spark, or are new to the community and would love to adventure through the visual chronicle of its past, present, and future... I cannot recommend this book enough."
--Matthew Mercer, Dungeon Master of Critical Role

"This is the most comprehensive, mind-blowing visual history ever created about DUNGEONS & DRAGONS. Beyond the iconic artwork featured on nearly every page, the book actually serves as a complete history of the entire D&D universe. Both fans of the game and newcomers will be completely blown away by the countless hours of research and passion put into this book. There's truly nothing else out there like it."
--Adam F. Goldberg, creator of The Goldbergs

"This is the definitive collection of DUNGEONS & DRAGONS artwork we've been waiting for all of our lives! The images contained in this book will instantly transport you back to your childhood, and conjure up memories of long forgotten adventures shared with old friends around the gaming table. This tome is an essential addition to every lifelong D&D fan's home library. Buy a copy right now--or make me a saving throw versus Death Magic!"
--Ernie Cline, author of Ready Player One

"DUNGEONS & DRAGONS has shaped the imaginations of millions around the world since its conception. This visual exploration delving into where it all began is a must-read for both dedicated veterans and new enthusiasts alike. A passionate homage from the biggest fans in the industry!"
--Maude Garrett, TV, radio, and online host and founder of Geek Bomb

"I grew up during the early days of DUNGEONS & DRAGONS, and it's been decades since I've seen the wonders that enthralled me during that magical time. At last, familiar treasures from the depths of the vault are here. They can make you cry depending on how deep you went. This is an incredible tome of power.
--John Romero, co-creator of DOOM

"This is a time machine. Poring over these images forty years after I first held the Basic Set in my hands, I'm overwhelmed by the same ineffable feelings I had back in 1977. DUNGEONS & DRAGONS unlocked something in my twelve year old brain--an exhilarating sense of possibility--that set my future course as a game designer and writer. This book inspires me all over again
--Amy Hennig, creator of the Uncharted series

"This fascinating deep dive into the world of DUNGEONS & DRAGONS will thrill both the connoisseur of role-playing games, as well as anyone interested in visual histories. I found so much information to inspire daydreams for months. I can't wait to add this to my library of all things geeky."
--Deborah Ann Woll, actor and D&D enthusiast

This tome of awesomeness [...] You can only begin to imagine the amounts of hours that this team of top notch authors poured into this. They gained unparalleled access to the archives of Wizards of the Coast and the personal collection of some of the top collectors. Needless to say this book will detail and illustrate the long and wonderful journey of Dungeons and Dragons from its humble beginnings to the cult status it obtained to this day. This has never been achieved in a book before making it the must-have D&D collectible.
--Fabienne Payet, Outright Geekery

"In the early 1980s, I spent lots of time working and gaming with D&D co-creator Gary Gygax during his 'lost Los Angeles period;' I went on to work closely with TSR until its end. For me, this is more than a book. It's a time machine back to a fantastic, fabulous time when anything was possible. For anyone who wants to understand the pure magic of D&D and where it came from, get this book at all costs."
--Flint Dille, Screenwriter/Game Designer

Can't give a higher recommendation than the highest for this amazing book! I've seen the preview and I was blown away page after Page! GET THIS BOOK!
--Stefan Pokorny, Founder and CEO of Dwarven Forge

"This book is an exotic, magical, and fun trip into the world of DUNGEONS & DRAGONS whether you've ever held a twelve-sided die or not."
--James Gunn, writer-director of the Guardians of the Galaxy movie series
