ABOUT THE AUTHOR
This is a beautifully illustrated book that combines the various manga artistic techniques with a bit about the authors time in Japan. My daughter has a vast love for all things Japanese and I am thrilled to share this book with her.
It is very stunning to look at as well as informative in both an artistic way (techniques that are used) as well as culturally. It is nicely bound and presented. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has a love for Manga whether you are an artist or not.
I gave this book 5 crowns.
I received this book from Bloggingforbooks.com in exchange for an honest review.
