Manga Design : Book Designs For Japanese Comic Books (良いコミックデザイン) explores the art and book design work behind Japan’s massive and highly competitive manga industry, where an eye-catching cover could significantly increase the readership of a series or spell its demise.
This book showcases innovative book and cover designs from some of the most popular and mangas of recent years, with over 170 manga covers featured.

An excellent resource and reference material for book designers and graphic artists, as well as anyone who is interested in the latest trends in the rich world of Japanese comics. Recommended.
