I was wondering what all official art books have been released for the Phantasy Star online games. Game Guides and far from Perfect Bibles need not apply.

I picked up PSP2's book over the weekend and that started a cascade of me finally buying the other books I've always wanted. These are the ones I'm aware of:
PSO The Book of Hunters
PSO 1 & 2 Material Collection
PSU Visual Book (NCS was selling these on eBay.. looks like an art book w/ a limited? OST but I've never seen it before today)
PSU Visual Book complete set (2 book set containing PSU, PSO ep.III, and PSOBB ep.IV)
PSZ
PSP2

Were there ever art books for AotI, PSU ep.3, and PSPo? Any others I'm missing?

As far as I know, they never did any specific books for AOTI or PSU EP3, but there kind of is a book for PSP. It's more of a crossover between a guidebook and an art book called GUARDIANS Maniacs. Looking over Amazon's description, it says that it includes concept artwork along with item and other game data.

I've got this. It's a small book (booklet, you could almost say) that was given away as a pre-order gift when the game originally released in Japan. Also in some bonus packs from certain retailers, I think. The CD has a few exclusive tracks on it.

Actually, I just accidentally found out that we have articles on those things here. Lots of older articles I'd just completely forgotten about! O:

wow I didn't know the wiki had a PSU merch section. I don't think I ever saw it before.

I saw GUARDIANS Maniacs while looking around. If it has concept artwork then I'm adding it to the list.

Thanks, Espio

The PSU Mini Visual Book, only bundled with SEGA Direct orders and pre-orders of PSUv1 (the PSU Deluxe Pack) comes with a mini-OST included (the one Espio linked to actually).
Apparently tough to find nowadays.
I have that one and the PSP2 Visual Book as well.

NCS (NY-based import store that I've ordered from for years) has like 6-7 of them up in their eBay store, but it's up to the collector to decide if $20 is asking too much for what is effectively a pre-order bonus.

After some binge ordering over lunch, I have everything I listed on the way 'cept GUARDIANS Maniacs and PSZ's book.
