Boutique French publishing house Pix'n Love have you covered this Christmas, Sonic fans. They're releasing a 300-page compendium celebrating the history of Sega's little blue mascot.
It's a glorious, hardcover coffee table book, priced a pinch under $50, and it ships...oh, in January 2012. So, maybe just get a preorder for Christmas? Not as exciting, I know, but it's better than nothing.
