It's a beautiful book and I spent several hours going through and reading all the lore and details on the pictures. I really liked the concept characters that didn't get in :3
kristinaelyse Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I LOVE that it's an official New York Times Bestseller! :heart: I thought the Timeline was really helpful, and I liked the Skyward Sword manga in the back of the book.
Victheman Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2013
So I got nosebleed because of it!
JocelynJEG Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2013
I think its so amazing! I love seeing the old concept art for characters especially TP and OoT Zelda. :D

Fuuuuu....I ain't got that but I heard it's like getting a kiss from Hylia.

I live in Germany and I wonder when it arrives v.v I ordered the limited edition and will get it on my birthday :meow: Can't wait :la: Only 11 more days *_*

Oh! I forgot to mention the manga at the back is a total eyegasm (as is Manga Link heh)
technojunkie123 Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2013
It's really great; seeing all the concept art from Skyward Sword and the previous games are fun to see, the story and reasons why each game fits the way it does in the timeline is wonderful and you can really see how much passion the creators and producers of Zelda have when creating each new game in the series when reading it. Definitely worth the money :D

It's pretty awesome. I've really only looked at the pictures so far because it just came in the mail today and I have a ton of homework. But it's cool, really cool.

Ok I just finally got mine yesterday and I love it so much content, designs, story and even a manga is in it and it's the manga format so you have to read it backwards. But even though I was flashed through the book but this is one of those books you can take anytime you want and or quickly learn something or concepts that never made the light of day.

Preordered it- it's pretty incredible, a lot of Miyamoto's notes are pretty funny. All of the timeline elements are online, but they pretty much cover every detail of Skyward Sword (they even show some of the characters that didn't make it into the game, and the other possible character designs- there's a fat Impa that caused me many lulz.) I think the concept art is pretty phenomenal- But if you want it for the written content then that's all online. I think it's something every Zelda fan would love to have, though. I'm obsessed with mine :heart:

It's amazing to see all those characters' designs and see all the the process of creating one. The concepts are breath-taking and the bonus pages of SS manga were really interesting (I can't wait to see the whole project). It was worth to spend my money on this treasure from the godesses ^^
LesMisLove Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2013
'twas so beautiful!!!! The manga ( though a bit out of my league) was really interesting and made me cry on the inside ;_; worth the wait!
Nativa-Basco Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
The concept art and the timeline explanation and the manga. Just... AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!
I can die happily now!
erico637 Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2013
they actually explained the timeline perfectly. i no longer am confused by it!. also concept art out the ass
ToonLink93 Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
I'd like to read Hyrule Historia, but I haven't it. __
TinkerBe11 Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2013
I really love it!!! I'm a huge fan of sketches and concept work. Plus I'm a huge nerd so anything that makes the world more tangible, like the in-depth timeline, is gonna give me a nerd boner. And I LOVED LOVED LOVED the graphic comic at the end.
AuthenticEm Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Love the concept art, and I'm going to end up making a costume of one of the Zelda designs from Wind Waker. The history part is super interesting and everything makes sense, and the manga in the back is a good read!
KA-KeitorinArtist Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2013  Student Digital Artist

Windwaker is comeing on Wiiu... Does that mean Legend of zelda became something like Mario where they just recreate the games? I hope not.
LedStripedDoors21 Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2013
I had a Zeldagasm

It's awesome! I find it useful for when my friends need some info on Zelda! ^^

I just got the book yesterday
but hav'nt had a chance to look thew it thoth

that sead, HOLY CRAP this thing is huge! (just looking at it it looks like it was worth evry penny)
MaxWIllustration Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
I love it! I love seeing all the concept art and alternate designs for all the games, and it really shows you how far the artists went to make the games. It's also just a really nice book to own, I love the cover, it's beautiful!
NarutoxHinatafan Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2013  Student Digital Artist
It's amazing!!! I'm still reading it but I love the focus on detail and how the artists wrote side notes on the drawings. It shows how hard they worked on the games to make them what they are today! :D
Selda101 Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2013
i ordered it but its not coming!
TheGreenDwarf Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I have ordered the collectors edition and it has not yet arrived. :(
FireDragoness Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2013
I ordered it months ago and it's still not here Dx
And I'm a little mad because it's been announced two days ago that it would be translated in french (my mother tongue) for summer. Oh well, at least I won't have to wait too long with the english copy I'll get soon :/
Zeldacrazy123 Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2013  Hobbyist
The books beyond amazing! Just everything about it. Artwork, timeline, manga it's all so beautiful:')
Animasword Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
It's a really great book; it's nice to see the creative process behind these games and some of the ideas they discarded (I do kind of wish we had seen the demon-human hybrid version of Ganondorf in OOT), plus having the timeline finally puts an end to all of those arguments on countless forums.
Kafei-Cup Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2013  Student General Artist
It's gorgeous! It both appeals to my love of the Zelda series, and inspires me as a budding Game Designer (since it has a lot of character concepts and resembles a Game/Art Design Document in some places)!
X-CityWolf-X Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2013  Student General Artist
I don't have it yet, but I just found out that I can pick it up at the post office on Monday when it opens after the weekend, so I shall tell peoples then. :D
Hayzer7 Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2013
very well done
Nova-Bayley Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2013
I bought it just 2 days ago! I haven't gotten through most of it but it's really cool to look at. I love seeing the work in progress and the different ideas that they had for the characters. :D I love it so far!!

Well, I don't have mine yet, because I preorded it thorugh and when I ordered it about 3 weeks ago, it said it would get to my house by Feb. 5, but then recently they sent me another e-mail that said it was delayed and won't get to my house until next Thursday (Feb. 7). But at least it came cheeper at almost $21! But is was worth it!
Dragon8457 Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2013
I was amazed.. Seeing what almost was is just so interesting.. The final version of Ghirahim is easily the least creepy.. And hearing the developers' thoughts was really cool to me. I would recommend it to anyone.
ThatGeekFromHyrule Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2013  Hobbyist
I really liked the pages about Ghirahim, he's my favourite character! However, I do hope they do somthing with the design that changed colour when he was angry or hypnotising someone, and was based on a magician. I wouldn't change the final Ghirahim in Skyward Sword for the world, but at the same time, that design seems too cool to just throw out. ^o^
madasivad Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2013
I just ordered mine tonight. Should be here in a few days.
Lunasatomi Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2013
I loved looking at all the concept art, and thinking, "Whoa!? that person could have been like this?!?!" It was really fun to read!! (^0^)
TaylorMurch Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2013
Agreed! The most fascinating of that, so far for me, has been Fi and Midna. Just, wow.

It's great! It makes you notice a lot of little details that preople who aren't very observant (like me) wouldn't normally see.
TaylorMurch Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2013
It's so beautiful, but I've hardly read much of it. So far, the only disappointing thing is that, in some of the text about the concept art, it's a third party speculating about it, as opposed to an actual explanation of what it means. Like, "Hm, that design looks like X. I wonder what they wanted to do with that..." I'm trying to objectively get over that little caveat, but my subjective heart is slightly torn.
I'm also further torn because I can't bring myself to look at any of the art or text about games I haven't played yet, because I live in a vigilant avoidance of spoilers. And because I don't have time for video games at present, it may be a few years before I finish the entire book.
But, hey, that's my own problem. I'll just reiterate that the book is gorgeous and I'm in love with it.
Porto881 Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I love it. Very informative. And as an artist it's very inspirational and thought-provoking to see all the concept art.
MidnaSpottedTalon Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
It is glorious and majestic. I love it.
FadingChild Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2013
[~nyu~]I haven't opened it yet because it's so pretty and I don't want to damage it.
