Dark Horse’s latest enormous and gorgeous art book

The massive tome of The Legend of Zelda: Art & Artifacts won’t hit shelves until Feb 21, but thanks to Dark Horse, you can check out six exclusive preview pages of the book’s extensive collection of art from every corner of Zelda’s more than 30-year history.

In addition to interviews with design teams, official pixel art and reproductions of rare promotional art that accompanied the games, The Legend of Zelda: Art & Artifacts also contains a sneak peek at behind-the-scenes art from the upcoming The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Dark Horse sent Polygon a preview copy of the book, and it’s a truly beautiful thing. But maybe you can get a sense of that from the following pages:
