Viz Media’s collection of Magic The gathering artbooks spans six titles to date: IXALAN, AMONKHET, KALADESH, INNISTRAD, ZENDIKAR, and DOMINARIA. They’re about to introduce a seventh: RAVNICA.
Ravnica is described as more of a city than a region. The book reprints, in massive scale, the majority of card art that brought Ravnica to life — and it also goes into more detail on the city’s history, community and guilds than the cards have space to tell. RAVNICA was written by MTG senior game designer James Wyatt.
An eternity of winding streets, dark alleys, towering structures, and rubble-strewn ruins make up the world of Ravnica. In this sprawling city, ten guilds are locked in a perpetual struggle for influence and dominance, each one seeking to advance its own agenda and philosophy—and now it’s time to choose your place in this conflict.
“Ravnica is a vast metropolis that houses ten unique guilds vying for power,” says Joel Enos, senior editor at Viz. “The new ART OF MAGIC: THE GATHERING book illustrates the specific cultures and traits of each guild, as well as giving readers the official lowdown on the plane’s creatures, characters, and locales.”
We’ve got about six months before RAVNICA will be made available…the book won’t be in stores until January 2019. Until then, there are six others to find if you haven’t already.
