San Francisco, CA (November 30, 2016)—No Starch Press is excited to announce the release of a wonderful book for Minecraft lovers everywhere: Beautiful Minecraft ($19.95, 112 pp., 4C, hardcover, December 2016).

As they pore over the pages in this remarkable collection, Minecraft lovers of all stripes will find themselves immersed in a world of astonishing Minecraft creations like floating steampunk cities, massive alien worlds, detailed classical sculptures, fantastical landscapes, and architectural marvels. The sculptures and scenes throughout the book are built from thousands to millions of Minecraft blocks and represent months and even years of design work on the part of their creators.

“I wanted to show how a video game can become a true artistic players can become artists,” said author James Delaney.

Beautiful Minecraft is the sort of thing that Minecraft fans are sure to love because it brings them even closer to the game they love,” said No Starch Press founder Bill Pollock. “Since my first visit to MineCon in 2011, I’ve been inspired by the passion Minecraft fans have for something that is much more than a game. Beautiful Minecraft shows us how Minecraft creations can be high art, and the results are nothing less than amazing.”

Beautiful Minecraft arrives in bookstores everywhere this December.

Interviews with James Delaney and high-resolution press images are available upon request.
