on Amazon Uk, it looks like the Art of Marvel Movies books will be released on Kindle on 6th December. Remember these books sell for around £50 each?

On Kindle, they are currently selling for around £2.50 each if you pre-order them.

Bargain or what?

Incredible price, but I think these books are best served as the physical books
given the beautiful visual details.

Totally agree, but, I've just managed to get £480 worth of reading material that I can cart around on a plane for £25.

And I can expand the page to inspect the art close up.

Nothing beats a physical book, but I couldn't justify the higher price with everything else I buy.

These books are for leaving on your coffee table unread. What would be the point of a digital version?

I can put it on my iPad screen while on a plane and then fall asleep.
Ah, the modern age

I couldn't imagine reading these on a black and white Kindle, but if you have an iPad or similar tablet, that's a great price. I have every one of them in print and they are a fantastic collection of books. 

This one, in particular, should be a must-have considering the film's many Kirby design references.

If you're in the LA area, Lead Concept Designer Andy Park and the RAGNAROK design team will be signing books this Sunday, Nov 12 at Nucleus Art Gallery in Alhambra.

Doug, they wonít work on a black and white Kindle. They only work on Kindle Fire or a PC/tablet running the Kindle app.
