Amazon listed the second volume wrongly at 200 pages. It's 224 pages thick, which is thinner than the first artbook The Art of Darksiders. Anyway, The Art of Darksiders 2 art book is still very thick!
An astonishing amount of concept art fills the pages. There are character designs, environment concepts, weapons, enemies and 3D renders. And all come with painted version and the sketches. That's a lot to see.
There's an incredible amount of variety and detail for all the artwork featured. Towards the end, there's commentary on the style guide and a brief explanation on how they paint over 3D models.
The 3D renders are gorgeous but printed a bit small at less than a quarter size for each character. They are considered small only because there's so much detail that you want a larger picture to look at them.
The binding has improved. But with a book this thick, I would still be careful. At least, I no longer have the fear of its pages falling out. It's definitely a huge improvement over the the atrocious binding of the first artbook. By they way, the May 2011 second printing of the first artbook has improved the binding also.
This is an awesome artbook with a remarkable amount of great art.
