Overview

For over 20 years, the character Vampire Hunter D has haunted the imaginations of people around the world, its image forever etched in the mind's eye through the dazzling artwork of Yoshitaka Amano. As the original novels appear in English for the first time, American readers are clamoring for a more extensive look at this singular creation. Coffin obliges. This gorgeous retrospective embraces the full scope of Amano's work with the character: in the novels, as inspiration for the animators of the two theatrical films, rare paintings, and illustrations created for release as limited edition prints.

'Vampire Hunter D' wouldn¿t be the same with out Yoshitaka Amano¿s illustrations. I love the words of Hideyuki Kikuchi, I love the movies, but the illustrations are what bring the character to life for me. Brooding. Dark. Romantic. Haunting. Mesmerizing. Frightening. Standing alone, cradling a pale female figure in his arms, or fighting an enemy Vampire Hunter D is all those things and more. And if the vampire hunter himself is all those things how can I describe the artwork? Full of delicate detail, startling action, and stolen moments
