Shigesato Itoi, Giygas, and Boobies
The EarthBound Anthology books were made back in like 2007 or so in super-limited quantities, so when one appeared yesterday on eBay a bunch of people took notice. What’s even stranger is the story behind this particular one:
I found this book at a thrift store and got it because Iliked the artwork, but found out it was a sought after book.
(More info and pics here)
I’m dying to know how one of these books wound up at a thrift store, but I guess that’s something that’ll be hard to find out. My current theory is that someone who had one moved away for college or something and then their parents cleaned out their room or something. But that’s just random guessing really, it could be any reason.
Anyway, if you’ve ever wanted a copy of these for your own collection, keep an eye on the auction here!
You can also see a low-res version online here if you’re interested!
