So Brom has finally released an artbook collecting the work from his career. It's a great one.

It's a retrospective looking back at his past artworks, from the 90s to the present day. You can see that even back in the early years, his paintings are already quite refined, and he gets better over the years.

All the paintings are wonderfully reproduced in high resolution. The bulk of them are printed one of each page in this large hardcover artbook. There are 208 pages so there's easily more than a hundred paintings, all of them character based art in his dark fantasy style. It also includes the paintings from his written books The Child Thief,Plucker and Krampus: The Yule Lord.

There are a few pages on his childhood, art schooling days and early career. He also talks about those three written books. I feel that some bits in the middle of the timeline is missing, probably because most of the paintings don't come with additional commentary.

Interestingly, this book is from a Kickstarter project in 2012. The target was $12,000 and in the end $235,000 plus was raised with over 2000 plus backers. That says something about how well his work is regarded. It's great that the extra books are selling outside of Kickstarter.

The Art of Brom is It's an amazing collection of more than 20 years of work.

Highly recommended.

I have two other books featuring Brom's art , but this is the most impressive and up to date.

They have done a really nice job of the printing and it's a must buy for fan's of fantasy art

Brom retrospective includes some nice new pieces from the dark master printed in the usual high quality, On the down side being a retrospective there's a lot of stuff that fans of Broms work will already have from previous volumes. The other problem is the small size of some of the plates, some of the images have suffered by being reduced in order to get several to a page.
So good but not perfect.

Brom in an amazing artist with a twisted and genius mind. His paintings have a life to them that you often find missing in fantasy art.
