Only Hours to Go Until the Official Illustrated Guide Releases

While we wait for the Breaking Dawn movie in November, fans can sink their teeth into the anticipated The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide which comes out  TOMORROW April 12th.

Given the wealth of Twilight information the Lexicon has cultivated over the years, Lori and Laura were pleased to work with Little, Brown in providing research and data for the initial draft of the Guide.

We’ve really been looking forward to the Guide, and were even more excited when it was announced by Little Brown that there were extensive illustrations, and the title was revised from the “Official Guide” to the “Official Illustrated Guide”. We’re sure you’re all going to adore the Guide as much as we will.  Once it releases tomorrow, please stop by our forums the discuss all the details.

    I live in Australia and I don’t know when The Official Illustrated Guide is going to come out here. :'(
    Does anyone have any idea?

  10. Love, love, love you guys! No one, except Stephenie, knows more about the Twilight series than you! We’re very excited for you that the long wait is over and that you finally get credit for all your faithful work!

  11. Imagine my shock when I was in grocery store last Friday and saw it on the bookshelf in the books and magazines isle. I think I literally squealed! It’s pretty pricey (it is a hardcover after all), but it’s beautiful and so thorough with background and details and connections of characters. And the wedding and vamp pictures of Bella are gorgeous.

  12. I just picked up mine a few hours ago at Barnes and Noble. I was surpised at how heavy it was. Lots of golden nuggets in it. It’s like one big “The Making Of” of which is pretty awesome. As a writer myself, I know that while you always can put a ton of stuff into your books, you always have to leave out so much more, so it was good fun to get to see Stephenie unleash everything. I’ve just skimmed through it thus far, but will start doing a full read through…

  13. I just got mine at B&N. I was so excited! Thank you Steph! I had no idea it was going to be that huge. No wonder Stephenie had to make Bree Tanner separate. I just skimmed it, but it looks amazing and I don’t want to put it down.
