About the Author

Japanese game publishing and development giant, founded in March 1969 by Kagemasa Kozuki as a jukebox rental/repair business. The company was officially established under the name Konami Industry Co., Ltd. in March 1973. Made famous in the old days for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Contra coin-ops series, and Castlevania, Konami expanded its brands over the years with titles like Metal Gear Solid, NBA In the Zone, NHL Blades of Steel and Silent Hill, as well as a large number of rhythm games like Dance Dance Revolution.
Since then, it has successfully grown with increased product franchises and continues to expand its lineup for both the home and coin operated markets. In 1998, Konami became a $700 million dollar publicly traded company in Tokyo. It also has offices in North and South America, Europe and Asia.

Amazing book, tonns of incredible art. The books came with "Diamond Dogs" bag which makes it even more incredible.
The only way it could be better if it came down with parachute like in the game.

3.0 out of 5 stars Artwork beautiful, packaging erm.... 7 Dec. 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The book content itself is amazing, comes in a really nice cardboard sleeve. Also comes with a bonus print but why I gave it three stars is the packaging and craftsmanship of the book itself. Scuffs on the cover (of the BOOK, not the outer cardboard sleeve that is MEANT to be distressed), paint bleed on the pages, and the print was completely trashed in all four corners. Pretty unhappy about that. But I do recommend getting the cheaper one or a virtual one because the artwork made it worth it...

I just think for the price I paid for it they should have been more thoughtful on the outer page paint or at least tested for that kind of bleeding, and also taking care of the print better. That's just awful packaging and its an unusable print now.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for fans! Not without issues though 1 Feb. 2017
By Castaway Ink. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This collectible is awesome, let's just put that out there! Great limited edition copy that I had to own for one of the greatest gaming franchises ever!

With that being said, quality assurance could have been a lot better.

PROS:
- Amazing art work
- Limited edition
- Limited lithograph from Ashley Wood
- Kick ass Diamond Dogs hard case
- Pages are thick
- Pages has the iconic explanation mark painted (also a con)
- Diamond Dog book mark (connected to the spine)
- Free digital version

CONS:
- Some paint bleed due to the red ink exclamation point on the outer pages
- Said paint bleed made a page stick together which ripped
- The binding is hand woven by a single binding (don't abuse the book, could fall apart)
- Said lithograph is from Ashely Wood, would rather have one from Yoji Shinkawa for the price (Quiet looks like a monkey) :p

For the price I would have expected more, although the book is limited and sells for $150 now, if it was constructed better/ with Yoji's artwork it would have been a easy $250-300 collectible.

You should also know that the DD hard case has scratches throughout ON PURPOSE. It looks so good that I actually submitted a return thinking mine got scuffed up in transit.

Definitely pick it up if you find it for $80 or less. I like being part of a limited edition club ;D

Great art book for Metal Gear fans. This book IS NOT a strategy guide. This is contains artwork for The Phantom Pain.
