Proto Anime Cut Archive - Spaces and Visions in Japanese Animation
Hard back catalogue in English and German
Edited by Stefan Riekeles
Proto Anime Cut presents drawings of the most important directors and illustrators of Japanese animated films. The action-packed hero stories and the visionary science fiction of Japanese Anime are set in impressive worlds that are constructed in painstaking detail. Looking at the creative processes, the filmmakers appear as architectural dreamers who operate with virtuosity at the borders of credibility, fiction and utopia.
