A sketchbook of production artwork by the innovative animation director Masaaki Yuasa will be published in Japan next month. The 432-page Masaaki Yuasa Taizen—Sketchbook for Animation Projects will include Yuasa’s work from Mind Game, Tatami Galaxy, Kick Heart, Kaiba, Kemonozume, Cat Soup, Genius Party, Crayon Shin Chan, and Maruko Chan.

The book, which will be published by Asukashinsha, may be a bit difficult to track down in the U.S., but you can pre-order it for around $40 on Amazon Japan.
