This book is a collection of three volumes drawn by Katsuhiro Otomo, the original author and director, out of the huge amount of layouts, original drawings, and original corrections used in the production. It corresponds to the second volume of things.
A layout is a drawing of necessary information for each of the scenes that make up the main part of the anime, and serves as a blueprint for drawing the animation. In addition to recording the original drawings and layouts of "Part B (continued from the previous volume) and the beginning of Part C" of the four parts A, B, C, and D that make up the entire movie, it is completed based on them. In addition, valuable duplicate cels of many famous scenes are also recorded.
I want to start off saying that the books are amazing. 0 complaints, 10/10 would recommend. However, when I bought them the ONLY option for delivery was express which cost a further $80 which is already pretty ridiculous. However on top of that, the books did not deliver within the express timeframe. I understand that it was aroudn Christmas time and people get busy and meeting deadlines can be difficult. However if I am forced to pay the price of the book again in delivery fees then I expect the delivery to be express. I would have been more than happy to select a lower shipping cost and period, however I wasn't given that option and then it was not delivered express.
