Before Spicy Horse and Electronic Arts ship Alice: Madness Returns for Windows/PS3/Xbox 360 in the fourth quarter of 2011, comic book publisher Dark Horse will release The Art of Alice: Madness Returns, "an intimate look into the stunning and terrifying artwork" behind this video game reinterpretation of Lewis Carroll's novel.

Slated to hit shops on May 11 next year, the hardcover book will feature 184 pages an introduction by designer and Spicy Horse founder American McGee. It will have a cover price of $34.99, but you can preorder The Art of Alice: Madness Returns now on Amazon (five months before its release!) for just $23.09.

After the break, I've included the full version of the above cropped image as well as several previously released concept art images from the game that will likely appear in the book:
