About Sky Longing for Memories The Art of Makoto Shinkai (Color)

Sky Longing for Memories: The Art of Makoto Shinkai is a full-color art book packed with art from the many movies of Makoto Shinkai, directed for Studio CoMix Wave. The book is a 175 page landscape format softcover, the majority of which are images. Inside you will find hundreds of backgrounds from from his award-winning works 5 Centimetres per Second, The Place Promised in Our Early Days, Voices of a Distant Star, and a TV advertisement for the Mainichi Newspaper.

Really Cool Piece to Add to the Collection

by -

This was a really nice item to buy especially at the discount price it is at, not only is the art in the book amazing and high quality even the pages have a nice thickness to them making for a satisfying feeling when you turn the page. You get over 150+ pages of beautiful art from many amazing works by Makoto Shinkai and even a behind the scenes as to how the art is drawn and colored as well as an interview with Makoto Shinkai and many other that work with him. Over all a really amazing and beautiful collection of art to add to your collection. Highly recommend.
