It was beautiful beyond belief although it is a shame because when I looked more closely at the pages they were falling out of the book so I hope it can be improved to have better bindings
Tbh, I'm a little bit disappointed. I was hoping for a guidebook (with a map and everything) and it is not that. So my bad, that's on me, I should have read more carefully what it was about. The book in itself is beautiful, no question, but, like others, it's falling appart and I'm very careful of my stuff. So, yeah, meh.
On the surface of the water, this book is simply gorgeous! Beautiful artworks, good writing charms, and a nice hard cover design: What you'd probably expect when purchase such a book.
But good gosh, I read the book for 10 minutes and the first few pages have already started falling off! I made sure to flip the pages as gently as possible considering I don't have easy access to such a collector's item, so no, I didn't tug at the pages or accidentally pulled them out. I sincerely hope this issue is rectified, it's a shame for a book of such great content quality to be subjugated to bad physical conditioning...
Honestly? This is such a precious book! There's not much I can say that hasn't already been said - it's of excellent quality overall, and seems reasonably durable as well. The artwork is beautiful and very appealing, and while the actual lore it offers are things that one may (or you know, depending on your run, might not) have picked up in the game already, there are pieces and insights that aren't found elsewhere, which is lovely as well (not to mention, I also quite enjoyed how there are hints towards certain, easily missable in-game secrets hoho)
Overall, it's a good product 10/10 I'm glad to have picked it up
I got this with the Collector's Edition combo and I'm so glad I did! Absolutely gorgeous little book. The pages are sturdy, the colors are nice and saturated, and the artwork is beautiful. It doesn't really offer much in the way of new lore/info but I really enjoy flipping through it anyway. Overall A++ purchase!
Get this item in a combo!
