Oblivion, The Daedric Dimension. Would-be travellers beware, “trafficke with daimons” is forbidden.

Many games go to great lengths to bring their worlds to life. Some go to really great lengths. None more so than The Elder Scrolls series, whose legendary attention to detail immerses the player in a fantastic universe steeped in rich lore and history.

The in-game world is littered with books and notes lovingly detailing everything from the history of the schools of magic, to undiscovered journals of failed explorers.

Now this attention to detail has been lavished on a series of real-world, physical books that you can actually own; sumptuous, gorgeously illustrated hardcover volumes containing the minutiae of The Elder Scrolls world.

The second volume in the Elder Scrolls Online – Tales of Tamriel series concerns The Lore (the first, which came out earlier this year, dealt with The Land). Full of never-before-seen sketches and illustrations, it brings the world of Tamriel closer than ever to the player, and shows Bethesda’s commitment to its creation.

It is published on 20 November from Titan, at £29.99 and you can preorder it here.

Titan has given these great preview images from the book, so you can get taste of what you can expect. Click on all images for larger versions.
