Default The Legend of Zelda: Art & Artifacts Limited Edition

The Legend of Zelda: Art & Artifacts Limited Edition


Dark Horse and Nintendo are proud to bring you The Legend of Zelda™: Art & Artifacts Limited Edition!

This exclusive edition of only 10,000 copies features an original cover with a
raised 3D embossed Master Sword. The book fits into an acetate slip case that features a golden sheath for the Master Sword and emulates the sword being removed from the sheath when the book is removed from the top of the slipcase.

Containing artwork from the entire history of the video game franchise, including the upcoming The Legend of Zelda™: Breath of the Wild, this is the sequel hardcover to Dark Horse's 2013 bestseller, The Legend of Zelda™: Hyrule Historia. It includes rare promotional pieces, game box art, instruction booklet illustrations, official character illustrations, sprite art, interviews with the artists, and much, much more!

The sword itself is a 3D embossed sculpt with a metallic foil finish and is printed at the size of an actual sword hilt to give the reader the satisfaction of unsheathing the realistic-looking sword from the acetate sleeve sheathe that encases the book. The cover's background features the Lost Woods in a deep, custom-mixed purple ink with a soft touch lamination and spot-gloss UV which is framed with metallic foil. The pages are gold gilded to round out the premium enhancements.

The Legend of Zelda: Art & Artifacts is printed on high-quality paper in an oversized format so you can immerse yourself in the fine details of each page. The book includes rare promotional pieces, game box art, instruction booklet illustrations, official character illustrations, sprite art, interviews with the artists, and much, much more! The Legend of Zelda™: Art and Artifacts collects many of your favorite masterpieces from the storied franchise, as well as rare and never before seen content, presented in one handsome hardcover.

Limited Edition of 10,000 copies

Two elements exclusive to this edition: Master Sword cover and Acetate Slipcase

Experience the thrill of finding and unsheathing the Master Sword with The Legend of Zelda™: Art & Artifacts Limited Edition!

Im hoping the price drops on this over time like many books on amazon.
This thing is like $50 bucks more than the standard for just a new cover...

Yeah, but so was the CE Version of the Hyrule Historian and that sold out really fast! >.< If you want this version I would probably recommend pre-ordering to avoid disappointment.

I'm not a fan of Zelda but Hyrule Historian was nice book - must pre-order that also (regular version)

The CE looks tacky.

I prefer the normal version.

Yeah, but that was limited to 4k. Also, looks like Amazon sold out of their initial batch thus far -- B&N still has it available though I believe.

Book Depository are still taking ore-orders too, for those who may have missed out on Amazon. They are slightly cheaper, but do take payment upfront.
