As someone who loves Legend of Zelda and has a background in art, I really loved this book. It was fun to see how the style has changed from game to game, and read the interview at the end with some of the illustrators to learn why. I also liked comparing which monsters and characters carried ove...

This fine collection of masterpieces is the most beautiful thing I have laid eyes on in a while. There's so much detail in even the NPCs, it's crazy-good; it really gets you to appreciate the magnitude of the work the Nintendo teams get up to. I found the art style of A Link Between Worlds to be...

For serious Zelda fans! If you have "Hyrule Historia", then you will love this book also. Really liked the timeline of all the Zelda games that have been released over the years and the cool box art that was used for each game. Liked the different sections that feature the friends and enemies you...

Fantastic art, loved it. They could have peppered the commentary throughout the book rather than keep it all in the end

4.5/5 stars ~
Thirty years worth of full-color Zelda art on high-quality pages, plus a few pages of creator interviews. It makes a nice set with The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia. It also doubles as a bludgeoning weapon because IT IS HEAVY -- dual-wielding bludgeoning weapons if you have both b...

Deep in my soul, I knew I was lying when I purchased this book. I said to myself: surely, this book will have some substance. It can't be as disappointing as Hyrule Historia. Yet, here I am, seven million pages of artwork later, without having learned more than a few things here and there. There...
