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
This is supposed to be a series of 3 or 4 books I hear. I really wonder what the next one is. I'd like to see an updated timeline and have Link Between Worlds and BotW included in the next one, whatever it may be. Fingers crossed for some kind of lore encyclopedia that really digs deep into the games' monsters, dungeons, characters, items, weapons, etc.
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.
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.
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.
Every page is filled with gorgeous art from ALL of the Zelda games and there's even a decent interview portion in the back featuring the creative minds behind them.
And for half the regular retail price you can not beat it. It's awesome. :)
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.
