    As far as Myazaki books go, the one to My neighbour Totoro is fantastic.

    hehe - a well known used bookstore in north hollywood here in california recently closed down - I was lucky enough to be among the vultures rummagging through the place as it anounced - EVERYTHING was half off - so I got the Nerdrum book for $30 . Booha!

    ok some more- Along with mandrafina's books, the next 6 are a must if you like B/W.

    Mort Cinder Book 1 and 2 - Alberto Breccia.

    Joseph Clement Cole - A legacy in Line and Art of Adventure

    Franklin booth - Painter with a pen

    The Gibson Girl and her America - Charles Dana Gibson

    James Montgomery Flagg - Meyer (more B/W. amazon or ebay)

    Black and White Images Annuals - 2 volumes - from budplant.com

    and back to painting


    Howard Pyle -

    Jenny Saville - Her book is on Amazon, but if you want the catalogues - ebay.

    ok my friend- start savin some money - cause ive got more if you want and they arent cheap

    Hey rascar. thanks.

    now before i forget for the 3rd time, does anyone know the book 'the mirror stone'? if so who the hell did it? cause it was an amazing book, along with another book which was about a young kid wizard or someone who looked like a wizard, can't remember name or author damnit.

    or anyone know of any dark childrens books? would be great.

    oh dude seriousely, i think its prolly my fave myazaki film, its hella simple, but stunningly beutiful. Try and track it down if you can, I think its even on youtube in 10 parts, but like it does not do it visual justice, try and find a dvd if you can its really worth it.

    what, so its even better than spirited away?!
    if i see the dvd around i'll get it for sure. hehe.

    ATTENTION! Does anyone know where i can get katsuya terada's rakuga king, in an english store? or cheapish with low postage cost?

    i have no idea how much it would cost to ship it over from the site 'animebooks', i'd love to get the hyung tae kim books, including the rare korean version of his second works. but that would cost a bomb, and i've already dished out 250 quid for my books in england alone. but i really want the rakuga king book. help me please!

    Are you talking about The Mirrorstone by Michael Palin, illustrated by Alan Lee?

    anyone know of any dark childrens books? would be great.
    As far as dark children's stories go...I have several in my own library and can recommend a few authors as well. Are there any specific themes that you're looking for so I can narrow down the list?

    Ron Cobb's - "Colorvision" is a must ( out of print, but you can do a search for it on ebay or other used book sites).
    Carlos Huante's - "Mas Creaturas" & "Monstruo" both are a must!!

    Also, check out the work of his son, Enrique Breccia, on the graphic novel "Lovecraft" published by Vertigo.
