Coffin: The Art of Vampire Hunter D

For over twenty years, the character Vampire Hunter D, created by Hideyuki Kikuchi, has mesmerized fans around the world. D's image has been forever etched in history thanks, in no small part, to the hauntingly mystical artwork of Yoshitaka Amano. The pairing of this duo was pure genius and solidifies D's immortality. Amano's gorgeous work is featured in "Coffin," the definitive Vampire Hunter D art book.

"Coffin" is colossal in both its contents and physical feature. At a whopping 15.2 x 12.2 x 0.9 inches, this art book is definitely a force to be reckoned with. Sometimes I forget just how huge this book is, put it this way -- it's not gonna fit in your standard bookcase. Its size is perfect to house these 113 black and white illustration and 72 titanic color images. The pieces include rare paintings and illustrations that served as inspiration for the two theatrical films as well as limited edition prints.

Also featured in "Coffin" is an original "Vampire Hunter D" short story created by Kikuchi, not available anywhere else. This is truly a must for any Vampire Hunter D fan, Amano fan, or art fan.
