Bitmap Books is proud to present its latest retrogaming title, The Unofficial SNES Pixel Book. Created in collaboration with German publisher, Elektrospieler, this lavish, 272-page volume celebrates the golden age of 16-bit gaming on Nintendo’s ultra-popular home console.

The book, which has been painstakingly translated from the original German text, features in-depth articles exploring the major genres to be found in the SNES’s huge portfolio of games. This is accompanied by tens of thousands of screenshots, specially taken, composed and selected for this volume, with a combination of single images, cut-outs, sprawling montages and gigantic level maps.

So whether it’s a colossal spaceship, multi-screen boss monster, giant fortress, or a comprehensive level overview, you can admire your favourite games and characters in ways rarely seen before. The book features a huge number of titles, from obscure oddities to the biggest classics, including Street Fighter II, Super Mario World, Super Castlevania IV, Axelay, Chrono Trigger, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and Final Fantasy VI – all beautifully presented and preserved for eternity.

The many games have been divided into classifications, with thoughtful and fascinating insights into the evolution of genres and design trends, and their impact on today’s video game landscape. Overall, the project represents the culmination of many years’ work by its authors, Robert Bannert and Christine Bauer, and translator Thomas Nickel.

The book is offered in hardback with a spot-varnished protective slipcase, and is produced to Bitmap Books’ usual superlative standards. 

Book specifications
272 page, 250mm x 250mm, Hardback, Spot-varnished cover. Lithographic print, Sewn binding, Spot-varnished 3mm protective board slipcase.

Same old Bitmap Books quality

If you love pixel art mixed with some behind the scenes insight this is the book to choose. I wish I can print some of the pages on the walls of my house.

SNES pixel book

My son really wanted this book. And he is really picky. I ordered it for his birthday. I was amazed at how quickly it came. It was packaged so well considering that it came all the way from England. Congrats on wonderful customer service.

Excellent Delivery, Ordering & Packaging

Everything from the ease of website use, ordering to final delivery has been excellent. Cannot review the product as it was a present but must have been good as had to order a second for a friend. Thanks for making this process so easy. Both recipients commented on the wonderful experience they encountered when opening their gifts and how wonderfully packaged the product was.
