First published in 2014, The Art of Street Fighter is a gigantic, 448-page book collecting over 25 years of beautiful artwork. The paperback edition has since gone out of print, but fortunately for collectors, publisher Udon Entertainment will issue two new hardcover editions on July 20th, 2021.
The standard edition has franchise heroines Chun-Li, Cammy, and Rose gracing the cover, which will be widely available and retail at $59.99. Another version, exclusive to UDON Entertainment’s online store and priced at $100, features artwork of Chun-Li in a swimsuit on the cover by the character’s original creator Akiman.
This online exclusive edition of The Art of Street Fighter also includes a “Guile Metal Collectible Card” and an exclusive, double-sided 33 x 22.5″ folded poster of the criminal organization Shadaloo Headquarters. The poster is again designed by Akiman, with English text on one side and the original Japanese text on the other.
Chun-Li also starred on variant covers of the Street Fighter comic’s 100th issue last year, also published by Udon.
