Summary: Looks absolutely great. Almost all of the art IS in-game art, the characters in all of their poses, or the frames of some of their attacks. Definitely worth it if you can get it for a reasonable price.
Meh......................boring for the most part!

Summary: I remember when I considered purchasing this game a while back,I had my doubts about it and sadly most of them have been realized. I thought this game,or at least I hoped this game would be fun,it's not that fun for a number of reasons. I don't want to go into all of them but I will say this much,the game is definitely not worth the $50 price tag,at least when I ordered it,it was around that price.
Summary: Vanillaware has amazing art. The book its self is kind of cheap which is to be expected due to it being a preorder bonus. How ever it does contain all the sprite action poses so its a fun little reference book for when I do some drawing. On a side note I found the portrayal of the female figure very juvenile in this game, I know its just a game and a fantasy one at that but common! Lets have some respect for women in the entertainment industry!
Summary: For one it doesn't contain many pictures you can already see in game or online for free. (Online has bigger and better quality) So I guess the "limited bonus" wasn't a lie. The few that are there are nice, but as with anything, in my opinion it isn't worth $40+ The pages themselves aren't high quality. Just a bit thicker - paper. Last thing is that some of the character pictures are cut off!
Summary: I have a lot of artbooks from games, and this artbook kind of disappointed me. It didn't have enough meaty sketches and character designs to whet my appetite. Although I am happy with the artwork, for the price it isn't enough. UNLESS you are a Dragon's Crown afficionado, I would suggest not getting this as in individual product. If it comes with the game, be happy with it.
Summary: I was quite a bit disappointed with the paper quality, it feels like cheap recycled paper, the colors are dull, and was disheartening to realize none of the gorgeous in game unlock-able art is included in the book, would Give a 2.5 rating if I could.
