    Description

    Katsuhiro Otomo - Kaba Artwork (Kodansha, 1989). Japanese artist Katsuhiro Otomo is probably best known for his pioneering science fiction manga classic Akira. This beautiful, first edition, hard cover book is full of previously unpublished artwork and covers, and plenty of beautiful sketches. The books is broken up into seven different sections, including illustrations, comics, commercials and other works; this book is an invaluable resource for learning about and admiring wide range Otomo's works -- not just Akira and the like. Like new, with original transparent plastic "obi" dustjacket. A must have for all Otomo art lovers. And just in case you were wondering... "kaba" is Japanese for "hippo." From the Collection of Chris Bell.
