This book has maybe 25-33% more art than the Hyrule Histora. I say art, because aside from the small interview section in back there's barely any text describing the art aside from the character's name or what game it came from. There is an interview in back of the book, but it mainly discusses the art of Zelda rather than the lore. You will not get insight or commentary in terms of hidden story lines or about the Zelda timeline in this book.
You do get art from the entire series from the original Legend of Zelda to Zelda Twilight Princess HD or Zelda Tri Force Heroes. There are 3,4 pages dedicated to Zelda Breath of the Wild, but again just promotional art you have seen before.
Like the Hyrule Historia, the ink and paper quality i really good. Great coffee table book for when you have guests over or want to browse through it if a loading screen ever pops up.
Overall great compilation of promotional Zelda art through the ages in one location
The book is separated into 3 sections. The first featuring full page illustrations from every game spanning The Legend of Zelda to Tri-force Heroes, the second includes art of every character, enemy, and boss from every game. Lastly the third section features bonus art including logos, pixel art, and even art from Breath of the Wild. If you are even a little interested in this I promise you will not be disappointed.
Content is identical to the non limited edition version. While the content is cool, but it's not mind blowing.
By far the coolest feature is the mater sword slip sheath. Nice touch, big hard to justify the premium over the regular version.
Must have for Zelda die hards. Not so much for anyone else.
I have two gripes with the book which are mostly minor compared to everything else this book has to offer. Some posters are printed over two pages where the seam hides predominate details (SNES master sword scene in particular) and I was hoping for less box art and more concepts and sketches, thus the "artifacts" of the books title was a little thin.
I liked all the different games that had Art represented in this book. The amount of beautiful colored pages was worth the money spend for this book.
I was a little disappointed in the way the book was set up and felt it could have been organized better.
My only complaint is that I wish the book had more notes and sketches for each game. Some of the pages just felt a little bland and left me wanting so much more to look at. I was hoping to see some early concept art for characters for each game, but it appears to only have finished concept art. Otherwise, I was very pleased with this book.
