Presenting the Spring 2014 Season Catalog

Dear Friends,

Insight Editions is excited to present our Spring 2014 season catalog available here.

Over the years, our goal here at Insight has been to produce cutting-edge books on photography, music, and pop culture that bring art to life by offering readers a greater depth of experience. Our state-of-the-art books take you behind the scenes and up close and personal with stunning visuals, removable ephemera, and unparalleled innovative production techniques. We’re looking forward to another exciting year of growth and to continuing to work with our world-renowned partners. 

First and foremost, we’re pleased to announce new products in our Insights Deluxe Journals line. Beautifully crafted, each of our licensed journals is designed to showcase iconic images from our collaborators; for example, artwork from Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed, HBO’s Game of Thrones, and Blizzard Entertainment’s World of Warcraft and Diablo. Additional journals capture the beauty of the natural world with photographs by Art Wolfe and of meticulously crafted Indian artwork from our Mandala–Earth Editions imprint.

We’re looking forward to the publication of Game of Thrones: A Pop-Up Guide to Westeros—a visually spectacular, one-of-a-kind pop-up inspired by the Emmy® Award–winning title sequence that opens each episode of the hit HBO® series—which caused a stir when it was previewed at San Diego Comic-Con last year.   

We’re also pleased to announce the second installment of our Vault of Simpsonology series, Bart Simpson’s Manual of Mischief. Last year’s Homer Simpson’s Little Book of Laziness sold over 200,000 copies worldwide. And gamer enthusiasts will be thrilled this season with both Gears of War™ Judgment: Kilo Squad: The Survivor’s Log and Assassin’s Creed® IV Black Flag: Blackbeard: The Lost Journal.  

Godzilla: The Art of Destruction will come out this May to coincide with the release of the much-anticipated Godzilla film by Monsters director Gareth Edwards and will follow in the footsteps of our massively successful Pacific Rim: Man, Machines & Monsters by David S. Cohen. Another new film companion book is The Art of Mr. Peabody & Sherman, out in February, which highlights the concept art and inspiration of DreamWorks Animation’s film based on the classic 1960s cartoon. In anticipation of the Michael Bay-produced movie premiering in August, we’re also coming out with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Ultimate Visual History, a comprehensive look at the previously untold story of the multimillion-dollar franchise.

Adding to our Insights Kids collection, which launched last year, we have two Angry Birds storybooks from Rovio Entertainment: Stella and the Hunt for the Jade Egg and Piggy Island Heroes: It’s Raining Pigs!. Also on the horizon, we have two more installments from our gorgeously illustrated “How to Banish Fears” series: How to Defeat Dragons and How to Knock Out Nightmares.

We invite you to explore our Spring 2014 catalog, which reflects our continued commitment to providing readers with beautifully crafted, interactive, and visually stimulating products.

Thank you so much for your continued support.
