Yeah, this sounds really cool. Will probably opt for the special edition.

How much will it potentially be?

Well the only other art book they put out is this Killzone one, which is $50 for the standard edition and $130 for the collector's edition (which comes in special packaging and includes a hand numbered giclee print of concept art).

So expect it to be around that price.


I'm gonna be spending a lot of money on Sonic stuff next year! XD

That looks fantastic. Will have to see how much we in the UK eventually get gouged on the price between traditional ripoff Britain & the currency nosediving =P

Cook & Becker seem to be pretty good at pricing stuff correctly. Like that $50 Killzone book I mentioned earlier costs €43 here and £32 in the UK. Also they're Dutch so they ship from within Europe anyway.

If this is what I want it to be, I'll pay ANY PRICE. But can we get some interviews from artists that aren't Kazuyuki Hoshino and Yuji Uekawa for once?

I'd personally love to hear from Sachiko Kawamura, lead art director for all of the main games since Unleashed. The Pixar humans, side-mouth and overall "realistically detailed but bright and Disneyfied" style are all her doing. I love her work on the series.

Has there been any update on this? Cook and Becker haven't updated their site since October 26th.

I don't know why I'm asking. I don't have the funds right now to order one.

If you haven't already heard, next-gen art dealers Cook & Becker plan to release a "Sonic the Hedgehog 25th Anniversary Art Book". The book will cover the history of Sonic and will include design sketches, official character illustrations, in-game art, pixel art, rare promotional art and game box art. While SEGA has provided Cook & Becker with many great art assets from the company archives, as is the case with original art spanning 25 years there is always more out there in private collections.

Cook & Becker reached out to us asking if we would ask you, the fans, to lend a hand if you can. As the book enters the final stages of design, there is little under a month left before the window closes on what can appear in the book and we are asking any fans with cool rare retro merchandise, rare original promotional art and rare manual scans to: https://www.candb.com/en/contact/ or email maarten [at] candb.com. Cook & Becker is looking for high res photos and scans of what they may not already have. They will credit anyone in the book that sends in material that gets included. I know, for example, that there is some really great original art from the late SEGA Genesis-era artist Greg Martin in several collections.

It should be noted that Cook & Becker are NOT looking for fan art, only rare and original official pieces of artwork and collectibles. More news on Cook & Becker's book to come, so stay tuned!

Someone should contact buyatari due to their plethora of Greg Martin works

I want the Collectors Edition, but really can't justify that price for something that I'll barely look at.

Just preordered the standard edition. I could and absolutely would preorder the CE, but Blue Blood is right about it being something I'll barely look at. I'm not an extreme collector anyway, so as long as I have the book itself I don't need to waste money on the CE.
