My three favourite art books of 2012 are:

+1:Awakening: The Art of Halo 4
Halo series is awesome and there is no doubt about that. It's great, when you can track the whole concept and vision of that universe and see it evolve - and the best way to really get into it are concept arts created for each game. What you can see in this artbook are the most characteristic elements of the series: giant open spaces, diversity of vehicles and weapons and awesome character concepts. This and overall high quality of works makes this album one of the best in 2012.

+2:Nuthin but mech
Mechs are awesome! - this is what this album is all about. Lots of great mech concepts, highly detailed and deliciously fresh designs. And i think it's one of a kind mech themed artbook on the market :-)

+3:The Art of Assassin's Creed III
I haven't had a shot at Assassin's Creed III, but just by looking at the arts I am very determined to play it right away. The most characteristic works come from William Wu, whom I adore, very painting'ish and dirty. In my opinion, they are the trademark of the series, giving the game a very specific mood.

thanks and merry Christmas!
