    Hi,

    Can I just recommend that anyone who likes high-quality film books, check out some of the newest releases from Taschen!

    Taschen are the publishers of the "Movies Of The..." (90's, 80's, 70's, and 60's) series of books, but have also done a lot of art books too.

    Two of their newest releases are "Manga!" and "Animation Now!", both of which come with a region-free, NTSC DVD!

    "Manga!", as its title suggests, deals with some of the best and most impressive Japanese comic book artists. The DVD includes covers and interviews from some of the best artists in the industry, like Kazuo Koike, Masamune Shirow, Osamu Tezuka, and many more.

    "Animation Now" profiles hundreds of world-wide animation studios and animators, from the CGI works of Pixar and Dreamworks, through to traditional animation from Disney, The National Film Board Of Canada, and Studio Ghibli. However, the book also covers lots of solo animators, like the works of Phil Mulloy, Joanna Quinn, Raoul Servais, and Jan Svankmajer! The DVD contains over three hours of material, including full-length animated shorts, documentaries, interviews and showcases of old and new animation!

    Both books retail at £20, but are fully colourised, large-format opaperback books, often containing 600 plus pages!

    Check them out today, as Taschen are releasing some of the best movie and TV-related titles I've seen in a long time! Highly recommended, for young and old! (Oh, and they look stunning on your shelf! :) )

    Check out their website here for further details!
