SNES/Super Famicom: a visual compendiumBUY NOW - FREE UK DELIVERY
It would be a massive understatement to say that the Super Nintendo had a formidable act to follow when it arrived at the dawn of the 1990s. Nintendo's previous console the NES (or Famicom as it was known in its native Japan) enjoyed seven years of almost unrivalled dominance following its initial launch in Japan in 1983 and had almost single-handedly rehabilitated the home video game market, turning Nintendo into a household name across the globe.
Focussing on the Super Famicom in Japan and the SNES across North America and Europe, SNES/Super Famicom: a visual compendium offers a visual snapshot of the best games, developers, box art and product design from across these territories. As the name suggests, the book is mainly visual; it won't be a super-detailed insight into the SNES/Super Famicom, but more a visual companion designed to stir up excitement and nostalgia for this fantastic machine and its legacy of classic games.
The book measures 170mm x 230mm and is printed lithographically to the highest standards. This ensures that colours in the book are really vibrant and pages have a high-quality, luxurious feel to them. As standard, all visual compendiums now come with a spot varnished cover and a spot varnished protective dust jacket. The binding is 'thread sewn' which means that the book can lie flat so the imagery can be fully enjoyed. The binding does not use glue which can crack over time and result in loose pages. Thread sewn binding is the best available.
SNES/Super Famicom: a visual compendium comes as a hardback edition and 500+ pages long. It also comes with four Super Famicom coloured bookmark ribbons and a 3mm protective board slipcase which has a lenticular fascia and is shrink-wrapped.
536 pages, 170mm x 230mm, 3mm protective board slipcase with lenticular fascia, Lithographic print, Hardback, Sewn binding, Spot varnish cover, Spot varnish dust jacket.

I've bought about 7 of their books now and all are exceptionally snazzy pieces awesomeness. Books to treasure!!
I've rarely ever been happier receiving books than when I order them from Bitmap. The books are always packed with such care, arriving in stellar condition and always incredibly quickly, considering they're shipping to Alaska in my case. The books themselves are always beautiful beyond description.
My friend really likes Bitmap Books so I bought him this to add to his collection, unfortunately I didn't realize he already had it. I haven't seen or read the book yet, but it looks like he's happy to have a fresh new copy added to his collection!
I've bought from Bitmap Books before and was very impressed with the quality of the book I received. This time was no different. The SNES book came packaged really well and Bitmap Books sent regular updates to let me know when it was going to be delivered (even specifying the hour time slot). They also sent an instant PDF version so I could start reading immediately. Superb quality books, superb service, this is the way all books should be sold online. 5 stars.
Everything Bitmap Books creates is fantastic. If you have even the slightest interest in the golden age of console gaming, this book is for you
