SEGA and Cook & Becker to team up to release the Sonic the Hedgehog 25th Anniversary Art Book

sonic the hedgehog art book announce

Via the Cook & Becker blog comes the awesome news that SEGA has teamed with the art dealer to release a Sonic the Hedgehog 25th Anniversary Art Book. The book will cover Sonic’s entire history and will include design sketches, official illustrations, in-game and pixel art, promotional art and box art. The book will also contain never-before-seen artwork and will have interviews with designers and artists who worked on the series. Pre-orders have not yet opened, but Cook & Becker expect pre-orders to open wordwide in October or November with the ship date set as early 2017. There will be two versions, a Standard Edition and a Collector’s Edition.

Not to toot our own horn, but back in July of 2015, we interviewed Aaron Webber and when asked what sort of Sonic merchandise we’d like to see, we asked for a Sonic the Hedgehog art book. Aaron sounded genuinely interested in making such a thing happen. So, you’re welcome and Aaron… can we have a free copy of the book?

    Looks good and I’ll definitely buy…but am I the only one that’s getting a little bit sick of all these video game anniversary books, merch’, and general celebrations? For most popular franchises it’s every 5 years and those 5 years are starting to get quicker and quicker. It’s worse with Sonic because there’s been almost nothing new since Generations. Boom is its own thing and Lost World had barely anything ‘new’ design-wise. This probably doesn’t make a lot of sense to people but look at Zelda. Yeah, there’s been new games but since 2013, which was when we got the Hyrule Historia, not a lot has happened yet they’re managing to push out not 1, not 2, but 3 NEW ART BOOKS. Give it another 10 years maybe.
