Super Mario Encyclopedia
On October 23rd, the Super Mario Encyclopedia will finally get an English release. And as is often the case with such books, it’s getting a Collector’s Edition. The one for this book is pretty special, because not only does it come with an embossed slipcase designed to look like a ? block, it also comes with one of four covers: Super Mushroom, Fire Flower, Super Star, or 1-Up Mushroom, accentuated with a shimmering holofoil.
There’s no way to tell which cover you’re going to get, though only a set number of each type of cover will be made. Also, the book comes with a ribbon bookmark, printed with the original vine design from Super Mario Bros., and a sky-and-cloud design on the pages’ edge.
This Limited Edition costs $79.99, and can be pre-ordered at the usual retailers (including Amazon) [NB: affiliate link].
