[blizzquote author='Blizzard' blue='http://www.diablofans.com/blizz-tracker/topic/249907-the-art-of-blizzard-book-launch-and-art-exhibition/' battle='http://us.battle.net/d3/en/blog/8220926']Just a few weeks from now will see the official release of The Art of Blizzard book, published by Insight Editions. The Art of Blizzard is a superbly high-quality tome dedicated to presenting and preserving the visual history of Blizzard and our Warcraft, StarCraft, and Diablo franchises. With over 350 pages and nearly 800 individual pieces, including a never-before-seen look into some of our unpublished projects, this will certainly be a must-have collector's item to adorn even the most discerning of bookshelves and coffee tables.
For those of you in the Southern California area, Gallery Nucleus will be home to a gallery show celebrating the release of The Art of Blizzard. The opening reception will be held on Saturday, January 12, 2013 from 7:00 p.m.–11:00 p.m. Nucleus will be displaying over 60 pieces of artwork from some of your favorite Blizzard games, and the exhibition will run until February 3. Additional details to be announced at www.gallerynucleus.com. A $5 entrance fee will be collected at the door, but costumed guests get in for FREE!
In addition, Nucleus will be among the first to offer advanced copies of The Art of Blizzard book for sale. Supplies will be limited, so guests should come early to secure their copy. Several of our artists will be in attendance giving painting demos, signing books, and meeting with attendees.
If you have the means, we hope to see you there, and if not we'll let you know as soon as the book officially launches and where you can order or pick up your own copy.

We know that not everyone may have a Facebook or Twitter account, though, so we’re going to start opening those questions to all of you here.
