"This is the story of how EVE came into being. From the first ever screenshots and the first ever concept pieces, this book covers the evolution of the visual language of EVE. For me personally, this book has profound sentimental value. This is a documentation of an unbelievable journey and the greatest adventure of my life: The creation of EVE." - Reynir Harðarson
