Default Anime Art Books

Hi Folks;

I've started to take a keener interest in the artwork of some shows, to the point I'm starting to track down associated art books.

I've discovered I am certainly developing a preferred taste for some art styles, as they just illicit the right emotions when I see them and when they also pay significant compliment to the story-line as well, then that's a winner.

I have a few already (will post later) but I have the following in mind;

I love the Vamp D artist Yoshitaka Amano, who illustrates the novels.
The artist for the manga Saiko Takaki is excellent as well, I just have a preference.
So, I'm ordering this;


The price is pretty good at, (3rd party sellers), less than $40Usd avg.

I also have strong interest in the SBY 2199 artbooks, principally the technical drawings, which are a tad pricey for some but are also rather large, so no doubt worth it.

I could rattle off a few more but I'd be keen to hear some recommendations from you very knowledgeable folk regarding some faves.

Please post pics (and if possible ) links my friends.

Der Mond Art Of Neon Genesis Evangelion is a great book for Eva and Sadamoto fans

My personal favorite is the long OOP Madoka by Akemi Takada

Thanks very much for posting kk1.

Now see, that's what I'm talking about. That Madoka by Akemi Takada is hot chocolate sauce on chocolate mousse with chocolate sprinkles.
Gorgeous art!
Sigh, had to pick one outta print did ya buddy?


Yes! Evangelion, good call!

A few more if you please?

I've always been fond of Ito's bizarre style.
This HC just came out in Apr this year so should not be hard to get. has it for about $26Usd.

Edit: also ordered the Amano book mentioned in 1st post. ( $37Usd +$17 ship)
