Off the start, i must let everyone know this is not a "How to" book in any sort of way. Its purely painted/3D modeled/etc and the text is written in a very sparse graphic novel type. Think of 1 paragraph every 1-2 pages of images. The best part being it fits the book.
Its great for reference and inspiration purposes in terms of sci fi/tech and even fantasy type art to a degree.I bought the paper back but if i knew it was this great, i would've grabbed the hard cover because its a book you'll wanna have very long term.
Also one last thing, the colours involved overall are brilliantly chosen for the paintings and work together really well. Recommended buy if you like concept art and/or love really colourful artwork.
