Udon To Release Card Art Books

Art Books of Card Art, specifically.

At the 2016 Licensing Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada, Udon Entertainment and 4K Media announced they struck a deal to print art books based on the card art of the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game.

For those unaware, Udon Entertainment is a company that typically handles translation of Japanese Artwork books for popular video game and anime/manga franchises.

4K Media is a subsidiary of Konami, made up partially of former 4Kids employees (and located in the offices formerly held by 4Kids) ,  who handle the dubbing and editing of the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime for international consumption, along with merchandising, licensing, sales and distribution of the series.

While I typically avoid speculation, presumably, the card art they plan to publish is similar to the full card artwork that’s been recently published on the Yu-Gi-Oh! Official Card Game Twitter run by Konami:

Example 1
Example 2
Example 3

The books themselves are planned to release in the last quarter of 2016 in the United States of America, The United Kingdom, Canada and Australia. They will be available via brick-and-mortar book stores, comic and hobby shops, electronic book stores, online retail outlets and small independent retailers.
