Book Review: Dragon Quest Illustrations: 30th Anniversary Edition

Dragon Quest Illustrations: 30th Anniversary Edition - 01


This is probably a must-buy for all fans of Dragon Quest and Akira Toriyama.

Collected within this thick 240-page hardcover artbooks are over 500 pieces of art that Toriyama has created from 1986 to 2016. There are artworks for all the Dragon Quest games, up to Dragon Quest XI, and also those from the spin-offs, such as Dragon Quest Monsters, Dragon Quest Heroes and more. Toriyama worked as a character designed for Dragon Quest so the bulk of this book is on the characters. The illustrators are beautiful and style instantly recognisable.

There's also an analysis of the Dragon Quest illustrations created over the years by the editorial staff of V Jump, and afterword by game designer Yuji Horii.

Format of this book is similar to Dragon Ball: The Complete Illustrations which was published in 2008, also by Viz Media. Basically, this book is packed with art without much text.

Highly recommend to the fans.
