^ So besides the slipcover & possible cover art, is there any difference between these artbooks & the non limited ones
Like paper quality or inside content?



Not that I'm aware of. You're paying $50 for the alternate cover, slipcase, and signed lithograph. A steal in my eyes.

Randomly came across this. Not sure what it is just yet... but it is a hardcover from BradyGames. (Not yet available on Amazon.)

CAPCOM 30th Anniversary Character Encyclopedia - $10.79 at Barnes & Noble

*Judging from the retail price, this could be a small sized book.

Ugh...Amazon shipping fucking pisses me off. I received three art books yesterday (Art of Bioshock Infinite, Art of Brutal Legend, and Art of Borderlands 2). All 3 books have damaged corners.

Time to get replacements.

The Mega Man Tribute book must have gone out of print on Amazon, I notice the prices are quite high.

Might be worth grabbing it off the Capcom store or local comic shops before it disappears.

1 in 20 items of this nature gets returned. You'd think they take more care by now

My Bioshock Art Book & Guide arrived yesterday from Amazon, and the art book was damaged. Yeah, I have returned several books to them this year, and between return shipping cost and whatever other cost they incur, I can't see the profit in this, but I guess with their volume, it doesn't matter to them.

Never pay high prices for Udon books. They're pretty consistent about doing reprints.

it would be nice if the Monster Hunter book wasn't horizontal like the first one, but from the looks of that picture it's going to be the same

The Amazon site claims a release date of yesterday, but still says it's a preorder. Maybe they haven't received their shipment yet.

Come on Udon! Translate/print in English the Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors/Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward art book.

I don't feel like paying about $50 for an artbook that I can't read the text.

 

More topic. Thinking about getting that Capcom 30th Anniversary art book.

At the very least, none of these seem to be rare or going out of print like older artbooks... but they also don't go on sale (besides the usual Amazon discount), which kinda sucks.

Out of curiosity why does everyone here love art books so much?

 

Obviously they are amazing but I was curious how they are used?

 

Do you guys simply love collecting them? Coffee table? Conversation piece? Just looking through them? Art reference?

 

I am an animator myself and use them as references all the time. It is so great to have so many different amazing artists at your fingertips. Plus I then can always rationalize buying art books as some sort of work expense : p
