Following on their success bringing The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia to English readers, Dark Horse is working with Nintendo again to produce a new hardcover book celebrating the epic imagery from gaming’s golden goose.
Described as “the first in a new line of The Legend of Zelda literature,” The Legend of Zelda: Art & Artifacts will comprise more than 400 pages of rare and familiar promotional illustrations, exclusive interviews with game designers and early pixel art — plus an early look at artwork from Breath of the Wild, the next installment in the series. (Not too early, mind you — the new game was set for a March 2017 release alongside Nintendo’s newest hardware, and Dark Horse plans to release Art & Artifacts on Feb. 21, 2017.)
The book’s Japanese counterpart, Hyrule Graphics, is due for release Friday.
The Legend of Zelda: Art & Artifacts is available for preorder now from Amazon. In addition to the cover, Dark Horse sent us some preview pages to share:
