More About the Author

Clamp, stylized as CLAMP, is an all-female Japanese manga artist group that formed in the mid 1980s. Many of the group's manga series are often adapted into anime after release. It consists of their leader Nanase Ohkawa, who provides much of the storyline and screenplay for all their works and adaptations of those works respectively, and three artists whose roles shift for each series: Mokona, Tsubaki Nekoi, and Satsuki Igarashi. Almost 100 million Clamp tankōbon copies have been sold worldwide as of October 2007.

Also, in the index, there is thumbnails of each piece of art in the book, with captions explaining why it was designed, what it was used for, et cetra.

It's rare for the art of a manga series I'm reading to be so beautiful that I actually want to buy a book of the illustrations. I mean, I can usually find most illustrations on galleries online whenever I feel like it. But (obviously) this Tsubasa art book is one of the exceptions. CLAMP has an especially lovely way of designing their illustrations. It seems like a considerable amount of care goes into each image, and I feel like I appreciate the beauty each image more in this book. When I look at the images in the book I notice small details I didn't before. There is a lot of detail, the costumes/settings are usually unique, and each image gives off a certain feeling. At the time of writing this, Amazon is offering this art book at $13.59 (with the potential for free shipping) and I feel that it's a good price.

If one of the things you love best about Tsubasa is the art, then you should get this book. Especially because sometimes you come across illustrations you didn't know existed.

This artbook, Tsubasa ALBuM De REProDUCTioNS: Original Art Collection is gorgeous and a great buy.

CLAMP is well known for their beautiful illustrations and designs. I love their artwork along with the series Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle. For awhile, I thought I could just save all the scans to my computer and live with it like that, but nothing compares to actually owning the book and having them to physically carry around and look at.

Plus, not all the images are scanned in online, so it was a pure joy to look through the book and stumble across illustrations that I've never seen before. CLAMP really does produce beautiful works of art. The pictures offer a wide variety of characters, settings, and things, including side characters, Yuko, new and old settings, all strung together to create a wonderful artbook.

The book itself is a nice size, its not small, bigger than most of my text books, but not overbearingly big. Just the right size! But, the normal size of artbooks. The pages are high quality printing and I feel like I have something very close to the originals.

At the end of the book, there is a cute, funny comic with Sakura and Co. and its absolutely adorable. Also, in the index, there is thumbnails of each piece of art in the book, with captions explaining why it was designed, what it was used for, et cetra. I really enjoyed reading about how they came up with Sakura and Kurogane fishing together.

And with such a cheap price, whats not to like!? Most artbooks go for very steep prices these days! I rate this artbook a 5/5 because you get way more than what you pay for, especially if you love CLAMP's artwork and Tsubasa.

I love this book. At the end where the artists comments on their work it mentions a 'clearfile', let me make this clear, there is not a clearfile with this version, the japanese one has the clearfile.

This book is a must for any Tsubasa fan! The artwork is really pretty!

I own quite a bit of CLAMP's work and this art collection just brings the majesty and magnificence of Tsubasa in such a grand way. There are full, two page photos, many of which you cannot see of that clarity or size unless you scour the internet. The photos are all in full color, with an index in the back to reference where the photo originally was published (what volume cover, etc.).

I purchased my copy from Borders, only because I was browsing for other material and saw it, and I had to have it right then and there. Although I purchased it for $19.99 (as I write this it is available from Amazon for $13.59) it is worth every penny. All of CLAMP's works are worth every penny.

And with this purchase, any fan of CLAMP and of Tsubasa will not be disappointed!

CLAMP has one of the most distinct and gorgeous art style and they continue to show what they're capable of with this gorgeous looking artbook. I'm not one of those people who would buy this kind of stuff, but this particular artbook just caught my attention and I did not regret getting it. If you've never bought an artbook before, this could be a great place to start!
