As I live in the UK will I have to order from the US store and have it shipped from there, or will I be able to order from the Europe store?
I would think shipping costs from the US would be considerably higher than having it shipped from Europe.


Nope, will still be shipped from the EU.

Yes, Falcon is talking about a book we want to do, but haven't comitted to or started working on. This book, while featuring a lot of ship art and some lore info about ships, is not a technical Jane's defense manual, but rather a more classic game art book.


The EVE Source book was nice and I'll almost certainly get the Art of New Eden. However, I have to be honest, it's the proposed technical manual that I'd really like to see. I'm sure there are some normal people who play EVE, but I'm also pretty sure that most of us are nerds and read instruction manuals. (You can test this by posting a "Rate my rig" thread in GD and checking the ratio of troll/flames : helpful responses.)

The artwork is jaw-dropping.

But CCP, there should be a digital version too. Why make it a limited edition physical item only? Release it digitally as well for all the world to see. It's a waste to limit this amazing collection to just those physical copies.

I can confirm that the book is available on Kindle.

Furthermore, it's just the fancy white boxed collectable that's limited. There is a theoretical unlimited supply of the standard hardcover version of this book, available on Amazon and elsewhere.



Oh, but I fancy the fancy birthday gift edition. I already have too many books literally piled on my shelves Lol as to buy anything that's not either pocket edition OR fancy edition. I already attempted to buy the first edition the day after, and it didn't work out.

Seriously. Next time split the stacks so we idiots who work on friday evening EU time zone have a chance. Or, at least start the sell in non-labor day like sunday.

After much digging and searching, we are finally ready to share with you the results of our artistic archeological expeditions. The Art of New Eden covers more than a decade of artwork for EVE Online, DUST 514 and includes artwork from the upcoming EVE: Valkyrie. If you want to see a sneak peak of what's inside and find out how to get your hands on a copy, including the limited edition, you should take a look at the new dev blog by CCP t0rfifrans.

And now the page isn't responding at all. Cart is probably empty by now despite the refreshing. It's 2:38 AM so I'm going to bed.

I hope the terrible server performance is evidence enough that next time it's probably better to take pre-orders first...
