Jiro Taniguchi Art Book Review

Jiro Taniguchi is a collection of illustrated works by the famed manga artist, winner of many comic accolades like the Osamu Tezuka Culture Award and numerous awards at the Angoulême International Comics Festival. I believe this is the first time the artist’s illustrations have been published in such a comprehensive collection.

The art book has captions in English, Japanese and French, so readers can enjoy additional background information about the artist’s works while browsing the illustrations.

(above & below) I find similarities in the art work of Jiro Taniguchi and Otomo Katsuhiro – check out Genma Wars, maybe because both of them are influenced by the legendary Moebius.

At 6000 yen ( about $58 ) the art book is quite expensive, but in my opinion worth the price because of the huge collection of art work, all beautifully reproduced in this hard cover volume. Recommended.
