“Katsuya Terada 10 TEN – 10 Year Retrospective” is the art book released in conjunction with the artist’s exhibition held at the Kyoto International Manga Museum from March 16 to June 30th. (I’ll post an article on my visit to the exhibition shortly.)
The book contains an expansive and comprehensive collection of Terada-san’s body of work, running the full gamut from his illustrations for art books, novel covers, character/concept designs for games/films, panels from his comics, doodles and more. There’s a whole lot of art work in here that I’ve never seen before.
(above) Palpable influences from the legendary Moebius.
This book delivers both quality and quantity in droves and gets my highest recommendations. I only wished it was larger in format ( A4 would be great ), and more of the prints reproduced in full color rather than monochrome. Of course, the price of the book would have been much higher too.
