"I'm always amazed at how many in-depth questions my readers have about my characters and the world within the Twilight Saga," said Stephenie Meyer. "With The Official Illustrated Guide, I hoped we could incorporate as many details as possible, including character histories, like Alice's back story. I'm thrilled with the different artistic interpretations done by Young Kim and the other talented illustrators, including Bella's wedding dress. I hope the fans feel it was worth the wait!"
―Stephenie Meyer

The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide is a book written by Stephenie Meyer that was released on April 12, 2011 in Canada and the USA.[1] The original release date was December 30, 2008, but was changed multiple times to make the Guide as complete and "as special as possible". The guide will provide readers with exclusive new material about the Twilight universe, including character profiles, outtakes, a conversation with Meyer, genealogical charts, maps, extensive cross-references, and much more about the Twilight series.[2] As revealed in an interview with Meyer, the Guide will include Alice's back story of which she has no memory.

The guide also includes illustrations from several artists, including Young Kim, the illustrator behind the #1 New York Times bestselling Twilight: The Graphic Novel, Volume 1. This definitive encyclopedic reference to the Twilight Saga is the only official guide and is full-color throughout, including nearly 100 full-color illustrations and photographs and 526 pages. The guide also contains geographical locations and maps.

Originally, The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner was supposed to be in the book, but the story became too long (178 pages) to fit in with the Guide. They ended up being published individually.

Cover

Meyer initially didn't like the idea of the two puzzle pieces, and it took the publishers a long time to convince her. The red and white color scheme is similar to the other covers, and the two puzzle pieces represent connection, since the guide provides previously unknown information.
