'The Art of Journey' book coming to stores in September with AR features

Also, check out 10-minute making-of documentary inside

PSN exclusive Journey is a spectacular game, especially visually-speaking. There's nothing like it. So it's fitting that the game is to get a dedicated art book with a sweet augmented reality feature.

'The Art of Journey' hardcover book will launch in stores in September, developer thatgamecompany has confirmed.

"Designed and written by Matt Nava, art director on Journey, it provides an insider's view into the stylistic influences, narrative functions, and game design goals that shaped the final look of the game," explains the developer.

What's particularly cool, however, is the book's innovative 'augmented reality' feature. "By downloading a free companion app, readers will be able to point their smartphone or tablet's camera at special images and see animated 3D models appear straight from the game."

Accompanying the announcement, it also released the below 10-minute making of feature video that'll be fascinating to anyone who loved the game as much as we did, and shows the book with its AR feature in action.
