Starting with Hyrule Historia originally published in Japan in 2011, Dark Horse Comics (in America) have released a brace of hard back, exquisite art books chronicling the lore, history and art work of the iconic adventure series, the Legend of Zelda. Each of the books features box art, concept drawings and interviews spanning the franchises history, which turned 30 in 2016.
The third volume has been revealed as a ‘master works’ edition to document the recently released Breath of the Wild, released on Wii U and Nintendo Switch. No release date has been announced yet, but this will be a must have for collectors and newcomers alike. Breath of the Wild is a strong contender for 2017’s game of the year, and Hyrule Historia and Graphics are two of the most comprehensive and beautiful art books around, perfectly complimenting a landmark game series.
