About the Author
Stan Sakai was born in Kyoto, Japan, grew up in Hawaii, and now lives in California. He received a Fine Arts degree from the University of Hawaii, and did further studies at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. His creation, Usagi Yojimbo, is the story of a samurai rabbit living in a feudal Japan populated by anthropomorphic animals. It first appeared in Albedo Comics in 1984. Since then, Usagi has been on television as a guest of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and as toys, on clothing, in comic books, and in a series of trade paperback collections. In 1991, Stan created Space Usagi, the adventures of a descendant of the original Usagi, dealing with the samurai in a futuristic setting. Stan is also an award-winning letterer for his work on Sergio Aragonés' Groo the Wanderer, the Spider-Man Sunday newspaper strips as well as Usagi Yojimbo. He is the recipient of a Parents' Choice Award, an Inkpot Award, multiple Eisner Awards, two Spanish Haxturs, an American Library Association Award, and a National Cartoonists' Society Division Award. Usagi Yojimbo Book 12: Grasscutter was used as a textbook in Japanese history classes at the University of Portland. The author lives in Pasadena, CA..

All in all, it's a pretty impressive book. It's huge over 12"x17". It makes for a really nice coffee table book. At this price though, I feel like it should have been signed by Stan Sakai.
If you've never read the stories in this book, it's a chance to see them as Stan Sakai did.
That said, there is wonderful insight to go along with the art, and I gained an even higher appreciation for the master artist and letterer that is Stan Sakai.
