The book is broken down by factions: Monsters, Northern Realms, Scoia'tael, Skellige, Nilfgaardian Empire, Neutral Forces, and special cards. All the art from the Witcher 3 in-game version was completely redone for the new game and many are quite spectacular.
Each section has an introduction to the theme, discussion of the characters, and thoughts on what the artists were hoping to convey. About half the cards are given a full page treatment with a discussion of the background of the character, the art approach, and a quote that tells about the card. Then there are several pages with 4 cards to a page and no descriptive text. Some cards were challenging (e.g., the shadows - how to show detail of a shadow creature) and others were about being creative (e.g., the cover showing Geralt casting Igni - but from the perspective of someone about to get burned by it).
There were a few characters/cards not in the game/books but created for this big Gwent deck. And the new mechanics expanding the game beyond how it appeared in Witcher 3 are also touched a bit upon. The book does a great job of exploring the universe, discussing the mechanics of a card game, and presenting the creative aspects of the artists and their commissions. Characters only briefly discussed in the books (e.g., the succession of Nilfgardian emperors from Emhry to Voorhis, to Jan Calveit are all covered here, though we only see two of them really in the games) get cards, which is also neat.
I admit that I would have liked to have all the cards have accompanying text - E.g., Fringilla, Vattier De Rideux, Priscilla, Sile De Tansarville, Ves, Radovid, Dijkstra....none have accompanying text. Instead we get text for Trebuchet or for Lesser Fog monsters. I really wanted to learn more about the characters, why they were designed as they were and why they were wearing what they were wearing. This felt like it would have been the perfect place for more lore. That said, to see so many of the beautiful artwork full page was impressive. And the cards cover all Witcher games as well as characters only appearing in the books. Game mechanics and strategy are briefly touched upon in some places.
In all, a beautiful collection with stunning fantasy artwork and nice accompanying text about the art, the lore, and the game. Reviewed from an advance reader copy provided by the publisher
