Classic TIA volume, which Mari Iijima autographed for me when she visited Pittsburgh, PA a couple of years back.

As you can well imagine, this is a really exceptionally special piece of my collection. :wub: When I first got into Macross back in the mid-80s I never EVER would have dreamed I'd get to meet her.

(I think a while back I posted a pic of my BGM vol 1 LP that she also autographed for me.)

That's awesome, what does it say on top of her signature?

It's hard to read, but I think it's just her name: 飯島真理

It's the same book - the "old" link is of the dust cover, the "new" link is of the actual cover.

I was wondering if this Macross/Orguss Design Works book is updated or simply a reprint?

This one looks new to me because the cover is different

I see, I should have realized that. Funny thing is I never looked at what is underneath the dust cover.

I don't have the book out to get scans, but I can tell you that if you are a fan of the character, this is a great book. Lot's of scrumpdidleumptious photos. One of the books I was more than happy to pick up for sure. I don't think you'd be disappointed at all.

There really isn't one. All of his books are always mixed in with other anime that he's done.

I have most of these. They are usually full of character bios, line-art, and sometimes unique Macross illustrations. The Macross Dictionary furoku is pretty big and the others are fairly short, 10 - 20 pages.

They are usually sold by themselves and rarely sold with the coresponding magazine issue.

Yeah, I had this book, well more like a pamphlet a little while back. It came in a weird size, somthing in between A4 and A5 and only had like ten pages or so. If I remember correctly it did feature various images and photos from various Macross series (mainly Mac + and Mac 7) and the Yoko Kanno concert.

Here`s my humble collection I`ve built up very slowly over the last 15 years. To feel generally satisfied ( besides an SDF-1, Super Ostrich, Max-1S and GBP-1S!) I just really need the Gold Book to complete my collection to a `good enough for now, for a poor guy` status). Anyone know how much the Gold Book generally goes for these days? Are prices going up, down or stable?

Hey, humble or not, you got some great stuff there, and you shouldn't be humble about it.

Here's most of my collection in sections, and I didn't take them out cause it'd take way too long, and some is missing for a project my wife is doing. Additionally to this, I have the manga of Mac7 trash, original and the new printings, SDF Macross Manga, and Mac: The First. For macross Chronicles, I have them all, finally, but it doesn't show here (project). Sorry if the pics are large.

Great collections JasonC and Million Star! Noticed you don't have any GunBuster or Megazone 23 artbooks. Plan on getting any? Mikimoto did some great work on those. :)

If I could find some gunbuster books, I'd get a couple. Actually, I have one that's got Gunbuster and Diebuster art, but that's it, and it's not really art intensive. I have quite a lot of other books, but those are just the Macross/Robotech books I have.

Oh there are some great GunBuster books out there. Not to derail this thread but check out the Yahoo Groups for GunBuster for more details.

Still you have a solid Macross artbook collection. Are there any Macross doujinshi hidden in those shelves? :)

Just picked up a copy @ Kinokuniya in San Francisco for $14. They still had quite a few left, along w/ 2 of the other art books from the movie and the Ranka/Sheryl dedicated books.
