A "Must Own" for all Dungeons and Dragons aficionados!

I received my review copy of Dungeons and Dragons: Art and Arcana a while back and it's been an amazing trip down memory lane ever since I started reading the book. This is a gorgeous oversized high quality production with lots of illustrations. I'm savoring it by only reading a few pages every day, as this is definitely a "must own" title for anyone who, like me, grew up with Dungeons and Dragons and Advanced Dungeons and Dragons. Probably the best Christmas present a fantasy lover could hope for!
