The Assassin's Creed series, a long-running favourite here on Fine Art, finally has a coffee table book worthy of its production values with the franchise's fancy encyclopaedia.

I got my hands on a copy today, and while it's not just an art book, the concept and promotional pieces dominating the pages certainly make that the main attraction.

While the project began life as a mere art book, it grew into a full-blown encyclopaedia, complete with historical notes, character bios and in-depth explanations of the series' backstory.

Those picking up the collector's edition of Assassin's Creed: Revelations (in Europe and Australia, at least) will get the same black copy featured in the gallery above. If anyone else wants one, you can buy a white version - which features additional content - from Ubisoft's online store.
