Original Story [Wed 15th Jul, 2020 15:30 BST]: If you’ve been keeping up with our Box Art Brawl series, where we pit various game covers from different regions against each other to see which is the prettiest, you’ll likely know that we love ourselves a glorious game cover or two.

Celebrating the very best of box arts available on Nintendo’s own Game Boy system is Game Boy: The Box Art Collection, a new and upcoming read from the dedicated team at Bitmap Books. A follow-up to the beautiful Super Famicom: The Box Art Collection, this new tome has been written by none other than our very own Damien McFerran and has superb artwork from the legendary ex-Rare concept artist Wil Overton. Oh, and Nintendo Life contributor and retro expert Gonçalo Lopes supplied the screenshots.

Take a look at this stunning front cover.
