It’s called (Valkyria Chronicles) Development Artworks, and puts all other art books to shame!

The game was released in 2008 and is set in a fictitious continent reminiscent of 1930s Europe, divided in two and ruled by the Empire and the Federation.

The Empire has set its sights on invading a small neutral country called Gallia, which is situated in the middle of the two great empires.

The game follows a hero named Welkin and his fellow soldiers of the Federation’s 7th Platoon that are fighting against the Empire, who are intent on unifying the continent under its power. The Federation discovers that the Empire possesses a secret weapon, known as the ‘Valkyria’ – an ancient race with special powers thought to exist only in legends.

With this new discovery, the fate of the Federation’s ability to win the war and a hope for a better future hangs in the balance.

One of the games stand out features was its beautiful presentation and graphical style, which gave the game an almost watercolour painting look.  It’s this that the 400 page art book has captured perfectly – have a look at a tiny portion of the book below;

And now comes the heart breaking part.  You want this right?  Well we are going to put up a couple of links but the sites are either in Japanese or completely sold out of copies - but keep trying and you may just find a copy.
