Rejoice: Viz Media to release a new Amano art book next week


Summer plus art equals a great time

There's something nice about companies releasing art books that feature an artist's older pieces. Not only do you get the chance to see how the person's work has evolved, but it also gives people the chance to see that creator's classic pieces. In regards to this great feeling, the gang at Viz are publishing an Amano art book called Yoshitaka Amano: Illustrations, which hits North America on Aug. 19 for U.S. $19.99/CAN $ 22.99.

The book features a compilation of Amano's works from the various projects he's been involved. Of course, folks can look forward to seeing his stuff from the classic Final Fantasy titles, Gatchaman and Vampire Hunter D. Like with many other art books, Amano: Illustrations will contain interviews and commentaries that'll talk about the guy's work.

As a person who loves Amano's sketchy line work and sumi ink pieces, it's wonderful to see that we're getting a book that compiles most of the artist's works throughout his career. To those who're a fan of Amano's work, are you all planning to pick up Yoshitaka Amano: Illustrations?
