Otomo Katsuhiro - 20 Posters Collection

To commemorate the 35th anniversary of Akira, the anime masterpiece by renowned director/manga artist Otomo Katsuhiro, Japanese art book Publisher PIE is releasing a collection of 20 high quality posters illustrated by the artist.

This is great news for Otomo fans, as his art work has never been released in such a big format, and they are perfect for putting up as wall art.

The posters are handpicked by Otomo himself, and the collection contains eighteen 20 × 14.2″ ( B3 – 508mm×359mm ) size color prints and two 40 × 28.1″ ( B1 – 1016mm×712mm ) size color prints in a specially designed envelope folder. The back of the folder shows all the interior images.
