We won't be able to get our hands on Alice: Madness returns the game until June 14. Luckily Dark Horse's gorgeous 184 page hardcover art book for the game will be here in May to tide us over.

Due for publication on May 11, The Art of Alice offers fans an unprecedented look at the creative vision behind American McGee's disturbing reinterpretation of Lewis Carroll's classic. This unique collaboration between publisher Dark Horse and developer Spicy Horse might be the best thing to come of the union of two horses since My Friend Flicka, which could probably use a dark American McGee re-imagining of its own.


Dark Horse was kind enough to send Kotaku a smattering of preview pages for the epic art book, which we're more than happy to share.

The Art of Alice is due out in May from Dark Horse for $34.99.
