Some Gorgeous Final Fantasy Books Are On Sale For Their Lowest Prices Yet

Take a trip down Final Fantasy memory lane with this deluxe collection of art from series designer Yoshitaka Amano.


A lot of talent has helped shape the Final Fantasy franchise over the years, but arguably, artist Yoshitaka Amano has had the biggest impact on the visual direction of the series. The Final Fantasy designer's career was highlighted a few years ago in the form of a 328-page book titled Yoshitaka Amano: The Illustrated Biography, and in case you missed out on it, you can pick up this tome of magical art at Amazon at a massively discounted price. Normally $150, it's on sale for $94 right now.

The book itself contains nearly 400 illustrations and photos from across Amano's Final Fantasy portfolio and it also comes with a 96-page landscape-style softcover book. This is a collection of sketches from Amano during a tour of Paris, and is a lovely companion piece to his Final Fantasy work. Additionally, there's a Blu-ray with almost three hours of material, two mini-lithographs made by Amano exclusively for this release, and an individually signed card from the illustrator.

You can also pick up The Sky: The Art of Final Fantasy box set at Amazon, and thanks to the coupon the page listing, this box set will cost you $110 instead of $200. Another tome of art, this collection showcases Amano's illustrations of the heroes, monsters, and worlds of the first 10 games in the Final Fantasy series and is complemented by a bonus softcover autobiographical book on the artist. Collectors can also check out The Sky Premium Flipbook, a silver ink Final Fantasy print, and postcards in this box set, which is clothbound with a hinged lid and silver ribbon inside to lift out the interior contents.

This isn't the only Final Fantasy book on sale right now; Amazon's buy two, get one free promotion will help you assemble a small library of Final Fantasy books at steeply discounted prices. Several art books have been discounted, ranging from topics such as Final Fantasy's pixelated era to more modern titles like Final Fantasy 16. Other books like Final Fantasy VII Remake: Ultimania are extensive collections of information on specific games. It's like a wiki, but on high-quality paper.

There's even a few Kingdom Hearts books to check out. Final Fantasy characters have appeared in Kingdom Hearts games, so we decided to include them in the list below.

Overall, there's some fantastic art to appreciate in these collections, not only from Amano but from many other designers who helped shape Final Fantasy over the decades.
