Expanse marks 15 years of Minecraft with The World of Minecraft coffee table book

“Our Minecraft books set the gold standard for gaming titles,” said John Packard, Publishing Director at Farshore and Expanse.

Farshore’s Expanse imprint has detailed The World of Minecraft, a definitive account of the game’s history to celebrate Minecraft’s 15th anniversary.

Launching on October 10th, the fully illustrated coffee table book will explore the history, community, innovation and impact of the game, including in-depth interviews with key figures in the Minecraft story.

As well as a standard trade edition, Expanse will also publish a deluxe numbered edition with original bespoke art prints.

In addition, Farshore is launching a revised Minecraft Beginner’s Guide, Minecraft: The Official Pop-Up and another Minecraft Annual. There will also be Minecraft Where’s the Zombie, a new search and find activity book, and Minecraft Mega Bite-Size Builds, the fourth instalment of the Bite-Size Builds.

On the novel front, Minecraft Journey to the Ancient City will land in December, while Collins will be expanding its range of Minecraft educational workbooks with four new STEM titles: Minecraft Science and Environment: Official Workbook, Minecraft Engineering and Mechanics: Official Workbook, Minecraft Design and Technology: Official Workbook, and Minecraft Computing and Coding: Official Workbook.

“We are incredibly proud to partner with Mojang on making books for Minecraft fans of all ages,” said John Packard, Publishing Director at Farshore and Expanse.

“Our Minecraft books set the gold standard for gaming titles and have engaged a generation of children in the joy of reading for pleasure.”

Alex Wiltshire, Senior Narrative Editor at Mojang Studios, added: “We’re intensely proud of the beautiful, inspirational and entertaining books we produce with our friends at Farshore. They expand the game for our players and help them celebrate their love for it, but even more than that, by promoting literacy and learning, our books are an important part of Minecraft’s overall goal of helping to build a better world.”
