The Visual Work o Mushishi

Last March 24th, Mushishi live action film was released in Japan. Directed by Katsuhiro Otomo and based on the manga by Yuki Urushibara. Otomo more known for manga and animation films such as AKIRA or STEAM BOY, returns to direct live action for the first time since "World Apartment Horror" in 1991. I haven't seen the movie yet but as it's usual in Japan, the film comes accompanied by plenty of related stuff such as this book, that covers the process of making and includes plenty of small sketches and illustrations by Otomo.
