Amano: The Complete Prints of Yoshitaka Amano

Amano: The Complete Prints of Yoshitaka Amano Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Japanese artist Yoshitaka Amano began his career with exceptional design work on fan-favorite anime such as Gatchaman/G-Force and Time Bokan and popular graphic novels Sandman: The Dream Hunters and Wolverine & Elektra: The Redeemer, but it wasn't until he turned his attention to the medium of printmaking that his artistic genius began to flower.  Drawing from influences as diverse as Art Nouveau and Art Deco traditions, American comics, Japanese ukiyo-e, and traditional fantasy illustration, Amano's prints capture a breathtaking world — sometimes whimsical, sometimes luxurious, and sometimes terrifying. 

Amano: The Complete Prints showcases hundreds of these captivating works, comprising an impressive, comprehensive look at one of the art world's visionary talents.  Art scholar and critic Unno Hiroshi contributes an insightful message on Amano,  the genesis of this style, and his place in the panoply of art history.  Also included is a brief timeline noting the high points of the artist's career.

Synopsis:
