About Elegant Spirits Amano's Tale of Genji and Fairies Artbook (Hardcover)

Elegant Spirits: Amano's Tale of Genji and Fairies artbook, presented in this hardcover edition, features the work of Yoshitaka Amano who is well known as a creator of fluid illustrations for the Final Fantasy game series.

Elegant Spirits first contains Amano’s adaptation of The Tale of Genji, a psychological exploration of courtly love written a thousand years ago by Lady Murasaki, and often considered to be the earliest novel ever written. The second half of Elegant Spirits is Amano’s Fairies, his portrayals of the many magical beings of English and Celtic lore and drama—from brownies and the Seelie Court, to Merlin and Nimue, to Shakespeare’s Puck and Titania. The images of Elegant Spirits are accompanied by excerpts of text, poetry, and the stories that accompany these unforgettable figures of the past.

A Beautiful Work

by -

The book is well bound and the fold out inserts are lovely.
The artwork is beautiful. The two halves of the book are very different; The Tale of Genji being much more abstract and Fairies being more similar to the works of Brian Froud.
The book has a lot of passages from various literary works which beside the artwork which is so good for inspiration.
