Those of you looking for the perfect coffee table accompaniment will no doubt have already earmarked some cash for the purchase of Super Famicom: The Box Art Collection, a lavishly-produced tome we've featured on the site a few times in the past.

Penned by Stu Brett and boasting amazing high-resolution photos of some of the console's best game covers, the book is finally going up for pre-order today - and it has been announced that a special Collector's Edition will also be available.

This special version of the book comes encased within an oversized Super Famicom style game box with a card sleeve and plastic tray inside. The artwork by Wil Overton - who did the covers for the iconic UK SNES magazine Super Play and has since worked as an artist at Rare, Blitz and Full Fat Games - has been specially commissioned for this project, which is exclusive to pre-orders and will not be available when the book is published.

Along with the Collector's Edition, an A2 poster featuring Overton's art is also being made available - 50 of which will be signed and numbered by the artist himself.
