    Melanesia is not a country, but instead a "culture area." Culture area is a term used by anthropologists to refer to a geographical region where people share many of the same traits. These traits include family structure, marriage rules, organization of society, and ways of gaining survival needs or making a living.   There's more than 30 years of art collected in this book. There's actually not a lot of artifacts featured, strangely, or maybe I expected more. Other art you'll see are the pixel art, logo designs and packaging art. Right at the end is an interview with four artists from Nintendo. Oh, there's also a bonus art gallery for Breath of the Wind Missing: Melanesia.
