#1 Posted by MrCandleguy (822 posts) -

My friend (not me, i'm a programmer so I have zero artistic talent.) Created this book for his project for school.

And i'm curious what your guys opinion of it is.

His name is Roland Merckle

As far as books of Steve go, this may be one of the best I've seen all morning!

That's beautiful! It's obvious a whole ton of work went into it!

He should contact Mojang about the possibility of selling a production version as merch.

I'd buy one and I'm not even much of a fan!
