Author / Illustrator: Yoshitaka Amano | 天野喜孝畫集《Final Fantasy》盒裝豪華套組
This lavish boxed set holds three separate hardcover books (The Sky 1, 2, and 3) containing Yoshitaka Amano’s visionary illustrations of the heroes, monsters, and worldscapes of the first ten games in the groundbreaking Final Fantasy series.
But that’s far from all—also included in the boxed set is the bonus softcover book All About Yoshitaka Amano, containing an interview, a bibliography, thumbnail guides to The Sky, and dozens of photographs of Amano, his New York and Tokyo studios, and what inspires him as an artist!
A further bonus is a mini The Sky Premium Flipbook, containing two different Final Fantasy animations made by Amano. Completing the boxed set are two souvenir items—a silver ink Final Fantasy print on clear acetate, and two oversize Final Fantasy postcards. The box itself is clothbound with a hinged lid and silver ribbon inside to lift out the interior contents.
The Sky is truly a treasure chest for all fans of Final Fantasy and the artist who created its unforgettable imagery, Yoshitaka Amano!
