Eragon's Guide to Alagaesia
Isinya kaya gini:
The book will be framed as a gift from Eragon to the reader - who is, in fact, a new Rider. In fifteen lavishly illustrated spreads, the reader is invited to explore the landscape and cities of Alaga?sia and its many races, including dragons, humans, Urgals, dwarves and elves. Each spread is filled with special effects and stunning examples of paper engineering and other elements for which Templar is so well known.
Eragon's Guide to Alagaesia will be released in North America, United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand on November 3rd, 2009! You can pre-order it today, on Amazon.com.
Here is what Christopher Paolini wrote about the Guide in his newsletter:
Kvetha Fric?ya! Greetings, Friends!
By now you may have heard the exciting news.
Over the past few months, in addition to writing Book Four, I?ve been helping Random House and Templar Publishing produce a companion book to the Inheritance cycle. It?s called Eragon?s Guide to Alaga?sia and is an illustrated tour of the most interesting peoples, places, and things of Eragon?s world. Eragon narrates the book himself, and if you pay close attention to what he says, you might catch a few hints about where the series is headed.
The art is by Fred Gambino, Larry McDougal, Ian Millar, and David Wyatt. (I also contributed a few sketches myself.) Each artist brought something different to the book?their styles vary widely?which means that you will get to see four distinct visions of Alaga?sia. After working on the Inheritance cycle for over ten years, I?m delighted to finally be able to share with you images of some of the things I?ve imagined for so long: the Beor Mountains, Tronjheim in Farthen D?r, the elves? buildings in Ellesm?ra, the Urgals, the dwarves, and much more.
The book is also filled with fold-out pamphlets, maps, diagrams, letters, and other intriguing odds and ends, such as a patch of simulated dragon skin.
I hope you will have as much fun reading Eragon?s Guide to Alaga?sia as I did writing it. (Just wait until you see the werecat!) Like every other book I?ve worked on, it was insanely complicated and faced some incredibly tight deadlines, but it was one of the most rewarding projects I?ve been involved in. I really enjoyed having the chance to write a book as if I were Eragon; to draw glyphs from the elves? writing system, the Liduen Kvaedh? (including the glyph for Brisingr!); to do a pen-and-ink portrait of Galbatorix; and, above all else, to see the artists bring the world of Alaga?sia to life.
I should mention that everyone involved in Eragon?s Guide to Alaga?sia was amazing, from my editor Michelle to the wonderful folks at Templar. Thank you all!
On a more personal note, I?ve been having a blast with Book Four. Not too long ago, I finished a large and important chunk of the story, which made me feel all warm and fuzzy, and now things are hopping with Eragon & Co. I don?t want to spoil the story for you, but here?s a little teaser: The chapter I just completed is titled Brains! And no, there aren?t any zombies in the book, unfortunately.
Mmm, brains . . .
May your swords stay sharp!
