Amazon has some sweet deals on art books of popular Japanese hits Atelier, Ar tonelico, Shining World, Monster Hunter and Valkyria Chronicles. Amazon has them down for a Summer 2011 release, with the first of the illustration books, Tony's Artworks from Shining World readily available by April 21.
Both the Atelier Series: Official Chronicle and Ar Tonelico Visual Book feature roughly 200 pages of illustrations from the many Atelier and Ar tonelico games. Monster Hunter Illustrations has just over 300 while the Valkyria Chronicles: Design Archive features a whopping 400.
Right now, as a pre-order incentive, Amazon has the books up for grabs for roughly USD$26 each. If you're a collector, like myself, you may be interested in taking a look.
And for our friends in Europe, the books are also being published and are up for pre-order on Amazon.co.uk, links are below!
