A new hardcover book featuring artwork from the upcoming Magic: The Gathering set Amonkhet is on its way from Wizards of the Coast and Viz Media.

Expected to release in July of 2017, "The Art of Magic: The Gathering - Amonkhet" will be the fourth entry into the collectible card game's art book series.  The book will present scores of full-color illustrations from an array of talented artists, including Cliff Childs, Winona Wilson, Christine Choi, and Adam Paquette.  Readers will also find additional insights and lore on the dangerous and beautiful world of Amonkhet written by bestselling author and Magic: The Gathering Senior Game Designer, James Wyatt.

“[The book] reveals a world of harsh beauty and incredible contrast.  While withering sandstorms rip across barren and treacherous deserts, a thriving city-state worships the God-Pharaoh who protects their verdant oasis,” says Elaine Chase, Senior Director of Global Brand Strategy and Marketing for Magic: The Gathering.  “Of course, beneath this utopian surface lies a darker truth, and James Wyatt guides fans through the lore of Amonkhet masterfully.”

The Art of Magic: The Gathering - Amonkhet joins The Art of Magic: The Gathering - Kaladesh (which is scheduled for release next January), The Art of Magic: The Gathering - Innistrad, and The Art of Magic: The Gathering - Zendikar.  The latter two books are currently available from VIZ Media.  Each contains specially curated collections of illustrations from Wizards of the Coast’s popular strategy card game, Magic: The Gathering.

Amonkhet is the latest expansion for Magic: The Gathering.  The set is scheduled to come out in April of 2017, three months before the art book.
