Posters by Otomo Katsuhiro is packed with the famous anime and manga artist’s most recognized works. For those unfamiliar with Otomo, he is the artist behind Akira, Short Piece and a few other anime he has created. Each page is filled with color and I can get lost just looking at the pages. There’s some really inspiring works of art in this book. It’s super interesting going through Otomo’s scope of work and I can’t wait to get my hands on something similar to this book. It’s awesome! As an added bonus there’s an Akira poster inside that looks badass.
This art book is a Japanese import, but don’t worthy it is mostly just art. That being said, it is available on Amazon, so get it before it goes out of print. The art is incredible, so if you’re a fan of the Akira I recommend picking this book up. In the beginning of Posters there’s a brief introduction written by Otomo about his life and career. In his introduction Otomo talks about his inspirations from rock music and American Cinema.
