Namco Bandai teamed with Udon to produce a new art book called Dark Souls: Design Works. The book, initially released in Japan last year and finally making its way to the U.S., will feature 128 pages of gorgeous artwork covering the game's haunting worlds and characters, as well as concept art and sketches from the original design team.  You'll also be able to read new interviews with director Hidetaka Miyazaki and other artists on the From Software team.

The book will release this October and should set you back about $39.99.  It'll give you something to do while you wait for Dark Souls II next March.
