Review: SNES/Super Famicom: a visual compendium

Books are wonderful and I am one who loves to collect them for various reasons. If it’s a video game book, I look for ones that contain the industry’s history or artwork that is hard to find. The good people over at Bitmap Books have put together volumes that make my wallet tremble, so this time I had the opportunity to review and record a short video on SNES/Super Famicom: a visual compendium.

I have never played the Super Famicom, but I have put a lot of hours into the SNES and it has a special place in my childhood years. Some of my favorite games were released for that console and learning more about its history intrigued me, so I was excited to pick this one up. The quality of the pages are excellent and that is important when talking about these types of “coffee table” books. Sometimes they aren’t very durable but Bitmap makes sure their products are sturdy. When you watch my video below, you’ll see how the slip-case has pixelated symbols or characters from various games and they reflect which was a nice touch.

Inside this visual compendium, you will find information, pictures, artwork, game covers, and more as you flip through its pages. I highly recommend fans of either the SNES or Super Famicom get a copy from Bitmap and add it to your collection. The price is reasonable and even the shipping is fast, even though it departs from the UK. I live in Florida and it got here in about a week or less, which I was very pleased with (thanks DHL!).

Enjoy my video review of SNES/Super Famicom: a visual compendium below and leave a comment with any questions, which books you are interested in from Bitmap, or let me know what books you are currently reading!
