I found this art book on Amazon France, which lead me to the blog of Benoit Patterlini. It's a 224 page paperback with a fusion of breathtaking 2D & 3D art. Not only is the execution fantastic, the ideas are great too. It's very different from the usual illustration-based art books I feature.
The strange thing is the book is listed under the title of De l'idée à l'image finale which isn't what's shown on the cover.
The page previews are below. Note that the red box and copyright info won't be appearing in the book of course.
Benoit Patterlini also does architecture renderings and you can see some of them in the art book, and some here.

If you buy the links, I get a little commission that helps me get more books to feature.
