[Books] Nishi E Da’s first art collection!

Image from AkibaBlog. More pics through the link. Some more also at Moeyo.

Nishi E Da, another one of my favorite artists that I know mainly from his numerous Comic Megastore H covers, is getting his first illustration collection! Just released on the 25th, the title of the collection is “Dendrobium”, which apparently is the name of a large family of orchids. Orchids in the language of flowers relates to love or beauty, and I think it is an appropriate title for the book because in my opinion Nishi E Da’s women are all so very purdy lol. His faces have a touch to them that are quite attractive, and is one of few artists that I’m able to recognize from the distinct style. The book contains a whoppin 270 pages of goodness which collects his cover illustrations and pinups for Comic Megastore H from the very first issue till around the June or July 2008 issue when he switched over to illustrating covers for Comic Megastore (taking over for Sonobe Kazuaki), with Ooyari Ashito of erogame maker LittleWitch taking his place for Megastore H. I will definitely have to either order this from Amazon JP or attempt to find it locally which probably won’t happen for awhile, but it will happen. Oh yes it will… This book will one day sit alongside my collection of favorite artbooks including those by INO, Sano Toshihide, Happoubi Jin, Hyung Tae Kim, and Keiji Gotou.

Availability: J-List | Amazon JP (if you can somehow order through them)

    This book looks gorgeous, unfortunately amazon japan doesn’t ship it to Canada. Do you know of any other web sites that would ship this book to north America?

    hmm I dunno…I just found out myself that Amazon won’t ship it to the US either since it was tagged as adult material :\ GRR!

    If anybody knows of any other places to get it, let us know!
