This is one book where I had no idea what I'm buying. When it arrived, it wasn't what I expected, but I didn't know what to expect anyway. By the way, Redline is a 2009 Japanese animated film about with sci-fi racing as the theme.
It's a large wide format paperback art book that comes with a slipcase, 128 pages in all.
There are only animation boards featured. It's all line art before colours are added. You can see areas marked out for colouring by different coloured pencils. Small tbumbnails of the scenes are provided so you can compare with the final project.
The style or art and character designs are certainly very Japanese. I wished they had included separate concept art pieces for the characters and vehicles to better see the designs. It's difficult to check out the details or visualize the set on the small film stills - particularly so if you have not watched the movie. The pencils are very detailed though.
Fans will probably enjoy and understand this book more. Those who haven't watch the film can give this book a miss.
