I just ordered my copy. I was just wondering if anyone else had bought it or was considering doing so?

I have it. Pretty cool book. I did a quick skim through but haven't had a chance to sit down and give it some time.

Looking forward to this arriving. I just hope it doesn't get thrown around and damaged in transit.

Ordered it online for £17 a few months ago, then seller cancelled my order at last minute. No stock, apparently. Then re-listed for £50 a day later.

Ended up giving up. Irritating as Id love a chance to do some art work myself from it.

Keep meaning to buy at least 1 new artbook a month to keep me inspired.

I think I remember when this was first released *******s buying a crapload then reselling them for 3 or 4 times the RRP.

I paid $35AUD which I think is about £24

Had a look on Amazon UK and its back to about £17-20. Oddly enuff thats for a brand new copy, with a 2nd hand copy listed at £24+

Gotta love importers sometimes.

Ordered a copy. I wanted a leather bound limited edition one but Amazon didn't notify me properly about it. :( Housemate works for Nintendo and he reckons it's a sure deal that they'll do another run - it's the most popular book they've released so...

Ok so I ended up ordering a copy again and it came yesterday. Loving the artwork. Already bookmarked several of the Goron character design sketches and a few of the dungeon critters. Great read for anyone into the history of the games aswell.

Wont ruin it for you, but deffo worth the money. Good wee read to be had from it aswell. Its no novel, but the history is well documented and the manga at the back is a very nice touch.

As someone who`s enjoyed most of the Zelda games, Ive never really pieced together the whole story across the era`s, rather just payed attention to the relevant points on a per adventure basis.
So its actually quite interesting to see how it all pieces together.

Probs gets passed about a lot on fan sites, but I`d love to see a "Zelda" where you play as her, maybe while Links incapacitated, or dead....

OK. Finally arrived. Much slower than usual.

Gorgeous looking book. I have had a quick flick-through and i am looking forward to reading it cover-to-cover.

Have you had any opportunity to do any more artwork, Colicab?
