Such a unique piece of Nintendo history. It was something I never owned, but used at a friend's house. I'd love to have one just to display on a shelf.

Thanks to Jon for the heads up!
Here's a bit of random info about me and the NES. When I was about 9 years old, I woke up at 2 in the morning to play the NES. I got away with it for about an hour, then someone started walking from the other end of my parents' house. I had no idea what to do, so I just turned the TV off and pretended to be asleep. My Dad picked me up and carried me back to bed!
..I've never asked him about that. I think it's time I do that and see what the hell he thought was going on!
The visual compendium books aim to showcase the very best pixel art, box art and product design around each system. Typically, the visuals are the hero with small soundbites of text accompanying each game. This may be a quote from the games original developer/artist, a review from a well know journalist or even a fan taking about his/her memories. Within each book is also a series of larger text heavy features on subjects such a key software house or developer/artist interviews.
