New Talislanta art for Celadon

The Lost Books project is in something of a holding pattern. Work gets the best of all of us and the Lost Books project is pretty much stuff that people have been doing in their spare time.

Except for Adam Black. You may remember Adam Black’s art from the Big Blue Book as well as throughout the Midnight Realm.

Well, when we finally knew that the Lost Books weren’t going to be published and we started to get them ready for your viewing as .pdfs, Adam Black offered all of the Lost Books writers a deal on artwork.

I took him up on that and commissioned a number of pieces for the (eventual) pdf that will result. I’ve posted one or two of these before, but Adam Black just sent me five more pictures!

So, I’ve whipped up an album where you can see them. There’s even a map of Celadon that (I believe) Mark ‘Tipop’ Williams did ages ago.

Hope that you all enjoy!

    Yes! These are great! Will we be able to print this book on something like LULU?

      Hm. I’m not sure. The hope is that it’ll be a nice pdf file like the other Lost Books. So, if you can get a pdf printed thru Lulu or the like for personal use, then I suppose that you could.

      There probably won’t really be anything like cover art and the pieces you see above are 90% of the art that will be in the book, so it’ll be mostly text (hopefully with the standard borders and sidebars and such).

    OMG!!! These look fantastic! I love seeing Tal art. I though tall of the new art died with the full art book that is now on hiatus. Thank you Doug!! Great job Adam. I love this community sooo much =D

    Is there any hope that the scans I cleaned up for the 3rd ed. guidebook two years ago will ever see the light of day?

    I had intended to continue that cleanup on other incomplete books once the results were approved since I have a reasonably automated method for it, but they have languished while other Talislanta projects have been moved along instead.

    I understand exactly that life intervenes in everyone’s case, but it is extremely discouraging to see other projects being pushed forward and announced when this one is much older and apparently undeserving of the same effort.
