This artbook was released in June 2020, the same month The Last of Us Part II was released. It's a large format 200-page hardcover published by Dark Horse.
The concept art featured in this artbook is gorgeous, as you would expect from Naughty Dog. There are plenty of character designs in sketches and colours. The environment artworks are breathtaking, the composition is especially nice. The heavy mood and dark atmosphere are captured really well. The text that goes with the artworks provide brief insight to the designs and story.
The environment designs are kinda dark though, dark as in sometimes it's difficult to see the details. So I enjoyed the more brightly lit Santa Barbara scenes a whole lot more. Even the scenes from The Last of Us Part 1 are much brighter.
Naughty Dog is just so good at storytelling and world building. The pictures tell the stories so well you probably don't even need words.
This is a fantastic artbook. It already has more than 200+ positive reviews on Amazon so to say it's popular and selling really well is an understatement. Get it while it's still in stock.
