A few artbooks

April 28, 2009

Great surprise when I got home today as my shipment from J-List had already arrived. Got if quite fast for SAL shipping.

Had ordered the following artbooks from J-List since they were able to get them all in one combined order, “Tony’s ARTworks from Shining Wind”, “Girls Girls Girls! 3 ~ Cover Girls Collection” and “Queen’s Gate – Mai Shiranui” book.

Wasn’t sure at first if I should get the “Tony’s ARTworks from Shining Wind” book featuring Tony Taka’s art from the “Shining Wind” game, but ended up buying it after all.

Being a hardcover, it would weigh through for shipping costs anyway so on a whim I decided to give into the temptation and get the “Girls Girls Girls! 3 ~ Cover Girls Collection” and “Queen’s Gate – Mai Shiranui” as well, of which the latter is not very expensive.

Counting these I’ve already bought 5 artbooks this year, which is quite a lot for me considering I tend to only get a few each year. Of course, this number probably pales in comparison to the volume of artbooks fellow otaku like Anony from Cool & Spicy, Merun from Claritism and Icie from Hunting The Elusive get each year.

But as they would no doubt agree, it’s not about how much artbooks you get, it’s about enjoying them and the gorgeous art in them. And I will surely enjoy these three, a cursory check promises the discovery of amazing art on every page.

Will talk more about each book separately later on as well as share my impressions of them, you can already discover all about the “Tony’s ARTworks from Shining Wind” book here.

    Oh, you decided to get Tony’s ARTworks from Shining Wind ~_^ Mine also arrived a few days ago. Quite thick and impressive ^^

    I also need to get Girls Girls Girls! 3. Have the first and second volumes and enjoyed them so I’m expecting 3 will be good too.

    @anony:
    Yeah, I just couldn’t resist. ^^;;
    Though there may be a lot of art in it I already had in the previous books.
    “Girls Girls Girls! 3 ~ Cover Girls Collection” is very nice but quite oriented towards specific artists (those who collaborated) which makes it worth it if you like those artists.

    Will try and put those up when I can. ^^
