About the Author
At the age of 12, Meagan Marie wanted to be Lara Croft. After realizing that "fictional character" wasn't a vocation she set her sights on working in the video game industry. Now Sr. Community Manger, over the past five years Meagan has been responsible for creating and evolving the brand presence on social media, hosting community events worldwide, and participating in interviews and appearances as a studio spokesperson. She still dresses up as Lara Croft. Some things don't change.

The design of the book leaves a lot to be desired, it doesn’t aesthetically engage the reader and the cover art an afterthought. Imagery through a collage of tomb raiders history peering through the silhouette or create an iconic image to commemorate the anniversary would have jumped this book off the shelf.
In some respects, this is an impressive, well researched tome of Tomb raider with perhaps too much personal focus on the authors interest in the series background.
After an initial disappointment with my first copy, I got my replacement book the next day, pretty quick.
I took the morning off to delve into this magnificent tome, and I was not disappointed, in fact going through it (actually reading it page by page) a few hours elapsed without me even realizing it, just sat on the couch with my coffee enjoying every bit of information of it. As a big fan since the first game a lot of stuff was actually fun to find out or just put pieces together from things you already knew. There's just so much solid info, detailed info, in this book, about each game!
So far I only got to the Croft Manor 'chapter', I was mostly curious about possibly learning new info about the first 5 games, they were the most precious to me (still have them on PSX) and the ones with the less available info online when game making wasn't as documented as it is now or even 10 years ago. So those pages went by really quick, with me absorbing everything. I really love this book.
On a more technical aspect of it, the quality is very good, hardcover, white matte background with glossy gray for the text and silhouette. Very nice feeling to your fingertips.
It comes with a paper cover, also matte feel but with black gloss for text and silhouette, good choice as I don't like when the protective cover varies to much from the actual book cover. On a personal note I would have prefered these colours to be inverted, white silhouette over black background, just because white cover books are a pain to maintain intact, anything, and I mean anything, will colour transfer into that cover (the issue happened with my first copy, proving my point) and any small crease on the the paper or pressure on the harcover will show in a white backdrop.Read more ›
You can tell Ms Marie is an uber fan. It shows on every page. This is a book that not only oozes knowledge from every page but also bleeds passion. It covers everything from the games to the films. The fans, the cosplayers, the collectors, fan fiction, the music, the fan sites.....did I miss anything ? Probably. Did Meagan? No.
She has the lot covered, with fascinating interviews with every major person involved in Lara's history and plenty of minor, although no less interesting, ones too.
It has some beautiful artwork from artists such as Andy Park and tons of full colour photographs.
This clearly is a labour of love. As a Lara fan I thought I knew everything.....clearly I didn't. I think Meagan Marie probably does and if you read this book you will too.
At this price (£16.99 at the time of writing this review) it's a steal. Buy it now, you won't be sorry.....but you might want to brace your back first. It's a heavy one.
Bravo Ms Marie. I have a lot of making of books and art books in my collection. Is this one of the best ??????
