Overview[edit | edit source]
The book includes all Shōji Kawamori's Valkyrie line art from 1982's Super Dimension Fortress Macross television series up to 2001's Macross M3 video game. This book is a dream for fans who appreciate Kawamori line art and design notes.

Reception[edit | edit source]
The book also contains a significant portion of line art never published before. This book has only a single problem; it should have been larger, preferably in dimensions like Kawamori's later Design Works book. Some of the artwork is small and the publishers occasionally include too much material on a single page. But this book gets almost everything else right and is a fantastic compilation. Also noteworthy is the fact this modern publication reproduces the line art faithfully while avoiding any digitization.
