Our friends at Random House have given us an exclusive look at two folds from Eragon’s Guide to Alagaesia, a visual book written by Eragon himself for future Riders of Alagaesia. The book takes readers on a journey through Alagaesia to meet never-before-illustrated people, creatures, and places in the Inheritance cycle, as well as offering information on each narrated by Eragon himself. The book was written by Christopher Paolini and illustrated by a dedicated team of talented artists who made their best effort to stay as true to Christopher’s vision as possible and it certainly shows in these exclusive spreads! Continue reading for a look at two spreads from the book as well as details on our upcoming giveaways and how you can get your hands on a copy of this book!Each spread we’re offering is very large in size due to each being an entire scan of a folded-out book.
