BOOK - Otomo & Kon

I never thought that this book will be available anymore in Amazon japan but suddenly it appeared to be so I immediately order it. it's KABA by Katsuhiro Otomo. An artbook that cover rare illustrations by Otomo from 1971 to 1989. A truly collectors item. With English and Japanese text. Once you start buying in Amazon you better keep on shopping cause shipping cost are not cheap and you always fell better if you divide them in more items. So I ordered another art book, this one about the film Millennium Actress by Satoshi Kon. A beautiful landscaped book with some English texts.

I don't know what happened with KABA but even I ordered on 2/05 it din't ship until two months later. Anyway by june the book was here and I can confirm it's a must have for anyone that likes Otomo's work.
