Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Sparth (Nicolas Bouvier) has been an active artistic director and concept designer in the gaming industry since 1996. Born in France, he now lives in Seattle, Washington, working for Microsoft. Having had the privilege of traveling extensively at an early age to such places as far a field as the USA, Singapore, China, France and Europe, he was influenced greatly by the various cultures, and he enjoyed observing people and making notes of all these tiny details of life that he was witnessing. The varied influences are largely responsible for his multiple creative passions, which range from space, to buildings, to robotics and beyond. There are no limits to his creativity when it comes to translating forms and concepts. One of his greatest passions remains contemporary architecture, of which he applies principles in his own art, with an experimental and original approach. He also harbors a fascination for modern skyscrapers, although he admits that he wouldn't be able to live too high above the ground himself. Sparth has contributed to the development of several released games since 1997. Alone in the dark 4 (2001), Cold Fear (2005), Prince of Persia - Warrior Within (2004), and Rage, a project still in development at IDsoftware, and has participated with Darkworks-Studio, to a lot of game projects in collaboration with large companies like Capcom and Namco. In 2003, he decided to leave Paris for Montreal in order to join Ubisoft on their ongoing projects, Prince of Persia Warrior Within, as well as Assassin's Creed. He left Montreal for Texas in October 2005, where he spent more than three years working for IDsoftware in Dallas. Finally, in January 2009, he joined Microsoft to participate to the future HALO adventures.

This book focuses on concept art for sci-fi and environment. There are spaceships flying off from the many sleek locations conceived by Sparth. The environment paintings are mainly of desolate but exotic landscapes.
I notice he likes to use a lot of dark colours and black to make other colours stand out. Even for the cover, it's mostly black with blue tint as colour.
Some illustrations use a different but refreshing style. There are some experimental sketches done using Alchemy drawing software which look very much like manga style because of the outlines. Those look great. There are also some beautiful paintings created using just squares and rectangles.
The last chapter features 4 insightful examples complete with steps showing his process.
This is another delightful art book. Recommended to those who like of sci-fi and environment art.
(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)
Experimentell, inspirierend und immer wieder ein Genuss zum durchblättern.
Für Fans von Sci-fi-Environment auf jeden Fall ein Muss,
zumal der Preis auch sehr human ist.

In terms of book quality and design you can expect the same well-bound, sleek looking pages type of binding and printing, with the same simple yet stylish interior design, perfect for this type of subject. Great book to have if you're a concept design fan and especially a Bouvier fan like myself!
As far as the book itself, it's chock full of fantastic work. I absolutely feel like i got my money's worth. He's the best there is at what he does and this book showcases it quite well. I highly recommend picking it up.
