Drool Over this Beautiful Celebration of SNES Game Box Art

By Julian Benson on at

Bitmap Books has announced a new hardback book that celebrates a niche aspect of game history. In this case, it's the box art of old SNES games. Going by the American name for the console, Super Famicom: The Box Art Collection collects together pictures of some 250 SNES games and surrounds the images with critiques of the art and interviews with people who collect the games as a hobby.

According to the announcement post on Bitmap Books, all the pictures are of copies of games in Stuart Brett's collection. You might know him better as Super Famicom Guy. He often writes about Nintendo's consoles and collecting as a hobby over on Medium.

Bitmap Books hasn't got a firm release date for the book, saying only that it will be out early in 2016. Just take a look at it, though. It's a beautiful-looking book:
