Dark Horse Comics has been hitting it out of the park with its Legend of Zelda collections. The latest volume features a live size Master Sword hilt on the cover that readers can actually remove.
Fans who purchase The Legend of Zelda: Art & Artifacts limited edition will experience the thrill of finding and unsheathing the Master Sword! The cover features a 3D embossed sword hilt sculpt with a metallic foil finish. The sword hilt is life size to give the reader the satisfaction of unsheathing the very realistic sword from the acetate sleeve that encases the book. The cover’s background features the Lost Woods (a maze of mystifying forests that has appeared throughout the franchise) in a custom-mixed deep purple ink with a soft-touch lamination and spot-gloss UV, framed with metallic foil. The book’s pages are gilded as well.
A regular edition of the book is also available for those who don’t want to pay for the cool hilt cover. The Legend of Zelda: Art & Artifacts is 400 pages in length, and goes on sale February 21, 2017 for $79.99.
