The concept is of "an art book which super high-quality cannot be achieved with regular bookstore distribution".
The art direction is by the design team BALCOLONY, who worked with the graphic design of titles such as "Your Name.", "Love Live!" and "Puella Magi Madoka Magica". It's an advanced, cutting-edge "monolith" design embodying the 10-year history of pixiv, and it's designed with particular attention to detail, with Japan's finest printing technique and binding.
Because of the special materials used for the production of this art book, it will be limited to 3000 copies and it will not be sold in bookstores. At the moment there are no plans for a reprint, so please take this opportunity to pre-order this exclusive tome.
