While focusing primarily on illustrators, the guide also represents work from the world of photography, sculpture, and painting. In addition to providing American creative professionals with source information on Japanese talent - full color images of their work, brief biographies, contact information, listings of awards received, clients, and shows in which their work has appeared - the directory also serves as a window into the latest trends in the Japanese illustration world.
A convenient key - A=Acrylics, D=Digital, O=Oils - assists in the understanding of the mediums in which each artist specializes.
Among the artists featured are Takashi Akiyama, Hitoshi Miura, Sadahito Mori, Takashi Sekiguchi, Radical Suzuki, and Hiroshi Watanabe.
