Press reviews

This coffee table victory lap actually represents a long overdue career summation, showing the same care and craftsmanship in a biblio-visual sense that the band have become known for with their musical work.

Metal Injection

Much like the Swedish prog/death metal act’s storied career, the Book of Opeth is wild and vivid.


Lavishly bound and elegantly presented.

Metal Hammer

No punches are pulled in this beautifully presented book.

Guitarist Magazine

A gorgeous set, every Gothically tinged metallic coffee table should have one.

The Progressive Aspect

This is a serious fucking beast of merchandise of the highest order and a celebration of accomplishment with a major sense of adventure and wonder for the entire business of it all.
