No Starch Press has outdone themselves this time with their Beautiful Minecraft oversized hardcover book, and my son is going to flip when he sees it. As huge fan of the game, this book takes Minecraft building to the extreme, and it's nothing like anything we have ever seen before. It earns its title, the pictures really are beautiful.
Some of the creations in here, like this tree monster (for lack of a better word), are ones I'd have never thought of myself.
Others seem so realistic like the people you see in the photos above.
To me, some of them are so elaborate it's hard to tell they were made on a video game screen.
I don't know that we'd have time to sit and make these, but looking at them is a visual feast for sure.
I've seen some good talent on Minecraft, this takes the cake though. These are just amazing, right? To be honest, I get lost when I play the actual game (my sense of direction is not good in real life either). I'm just not very good at it. But my son likes it, and he builds sometimes. I wonder if he'll try to emulate these or if he's going to just read it. Time shall tell... right now it's under the Christmas Tree. :)
