Sadly, I do not recall if such a book exists.  There have been several genga printed in various books though.

I have not looked at one of my older DYRL books for a long time and I want to say it may have a good amount of genga.  I will need to find it in my book archives and see if perhaps it has a good selection of what you are looking for.  BTW...this is the book I am referring to....

There are digital files of that book available if you want a look before you try hunting it down. I think in the scans there are something like 60 odd scans of genga from DYRL, about 20 or so of which are colour

Don't know if its kosher to post a link to where they are on the web here, but I have them in a .zip file that can be emailed.

  Fortress, shoot me a pm if you're interested.

It's  better to have the actual book, but like I said if you wanna have a look before you set out on the hunt. . .

@Fortress_Maximus Here you go!  Haven't thumbed through this book for years...at least a decade for sure!  I had forgotten all about it.  Anyway, it has plenty of genga for DYRL?  some in color but most in B/W.....so in answer to your question.....yes a DYRL? Genga book has been out for decades...lol

This is not in limited quantities right? It doesn't ship to my address, so if I really want to order now I'll have to use a proxy. I could wait, but I don't wanna miss out too.

I am hoping this is more like an update to the old Shoji Kawamori Macross Design Works.....

....a massive update 20 years in the making!....the nice thing about the Macross Design Works book was the inclusion of several pages worth of color concept illustrations for various VFs...the Macross Variable Fighter Designers Note only contains lineart....what the recent exhibit companion books have shown us is that Kawamori has plenty of material we have not seen before...600+ pages should be enough to give us a look at some stuff we have not seen before...or at minimum not compiled into one convenient book...

The only question now is what will get into our hands first.....the Kawamori or Mikimoto book? :rolleyes:

I hope HLJ or someone else will carry this new book that will allow us in Canada to buy it!

HLJ's only offering express/priority shipping these days, so shipping's still gonna hurt... but it's odds-on they'll be carrying this book.

@jvmacross Let us know if you manage to order the Macross Designer’s Note somewhere.

Yes, checking at least once a day....probably going to end up using Hobby Search, HLJ, or AmiAmi....unless you are OK with buying via a proxy, then Amazon.jp or Rakuten Books are currently available...but I personally want to avoid the middle man.
