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.
272 page, 250mm x 250mm, Hardback, Spot-varnished cover. Lithographic print, Sewn binding, Spot-varnished 3mm protective board slipcase.
Amazing book, extreme high quality
I couldn't believe the quality of the paper used in this book. Its like they are cloth plastic hybrid. The pictures and colors explode off the page. My only tiny complaint is that its not the same size as all the other Bitmap books I already have. I didn't realize that so it can't go on the shelf with them. Its a coffee table book for sure.
Absolutely well worth the purchase price. Quality title, excellent website.
Superb quality as usual
I almost got all the books as i’m a fan of the quality, the contents and big pixel prints in the books. The packaging is just the best i ever saw and every delivery has been flawless, putting a big smile on my face during the unboxing. Keep up this level of quality and attention to your customers!
The book is lovely! When
The book is lovely! When it originally shipped, I happened to get one where the binding glue had glued the book into the slipcase and I couldn't get it out. I reached out with my concern and a replacement was immediately issued. The replacement has no issues whatsoever! I'm super happy with this company as they always put out high quality and beautiful books, and this one is no exception.
As always quality items
Super fast delivery. Well protected. Very pleased! Great art!
