Book Description

July 23 2013
Dark Horse is pleased to offer fans another chance to own the three-book hardcover set The Sky I, II, and III, included in the new The Sky: The Art of Final Fantasy Slipcased Edition!

The Sky I, II, and III showcase Amano's ethereal illustrations for the first ten Final Fantasy games! Each hardcover book in The Sky Slipcased Edition is 11 5/8" high by 10 5/8" wide, and printed on glossy stock. Volume 1 contains Amano's work for Final Fantasy I-III. Volume 2 contains his contributions for Final Fantasy IV-VI, and volume 3 features his art for Final Fantasy VII-X.

The slipcase containing The Sky I, II, and III features the same wraparound exterior artwork as The Sky Boxed Set, with a double-hinged flap that folds around the open edge and is held flat to the back side with a hidden magnetic closure, making it easy both to remove the books and to display the set closed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must buy for Amano fans. July 31 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Being a massive Final Fantasy fan, I was ecstatic when I found this. I had to buy it right away. The art inside is what you would expect from Amano, beautiful. There is no writing inside the books, which may be a downside for some. My only complaint is the small dent on the slipcase from the shipping, which is barely noticeable.

Length: 1:51 Mins
In 2012, Dark Horse released the first edition of The Sky limited to 1000 copies. Many who pre-ordered were left sorely disappointed when their books did not ship when the shipping date went by. 1000 limited copies for fans of Final Fantasy, a game series that has over millions of fans. Now that's truly limited.

Well, it's all good now. Dark Horse has released, this time, a non-limited edition of The Sky that is more easily available. Although there are no additional goodies with this release.

This is a slipcase set with three hardcover books. The cardboard slipcase is covered with some silky fabric with a beautiful print across and to the back. It's very sturdy cardboard and even has a cover for the opening. The presentation is very nice.

Inside the book there are the three large format artbooks. Volume 1 collects works for FF I-III, Volume 2 for FF IV-VI and 3 for FF VII-X. This is a collection of artworks from 1987 to 2001. Altogether, there are 576 pages.

This box set might not be what you're expecting depending on the type of FF fan you are.

I suspect there might be a group of fans or designers looking for art that is closer to the games. You know, like those art-of books typically released alongside games? The Sky is not like those artbooks. There's no full list of characters or enemies, environment art (I'm still looking for these), weapons, vehicles or promotional art.

The focus in on character designer Yoshitaka Amano and his character designs. There are over hundreds of drawings of characters and enemies in the unique Amano style of art.

It really interesting to see, for the first few games, how those dot matrix game sprites are translated into or from the concept art.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome art and awesome price Aug. 31 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a great deal for the price, the 3 books included are very good quality (sturdy) and the case they go in is very nice as well. The artwork inside is amazing and extremely detailed, this is years of work put into this collection. Great coffee table book for guests to look through.

If you enjoy the artwork of Yoshitaka Amano, you will love "Thy Sky: The Art of Final Fantasy Slipcased Edition", I know I did, I'm very pleased with this purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful July 24 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The box itself is like a piece of art!
I'm very impressed with both the quality of the prints and the content. It has all the artwork from my favorite Final Fantasys and many that I have not seen before. The binding is well done (I mention this because I have seen many art books with weak bindings that you have a feeling if you open it more the pages would fall apart). The only minor drawback for some might be the lack of information, there are only occasionally names of the character next to the art but not much else (though it doesn't really bother me). As a big fan of Final Fantasy IV and VI that loves Amano's unique art style, this is a must have item.

Nice large sized offering of artwork from the man who helped give final fantasy its look and feel that has persisted over the years. Nice collection and a truly great item for any hard core fan of the game series.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Just so incredible. My boyfriend was blown away by it. Such an amazing collection. The only thing is that the box doesn't close at he side, but that's nothing that can't be overlooked, especially compared to the amazing quality.

Great acquisition for any fantasy art fan or final fantasy fan.
lots of contents and a great piece of collection.
The last chapter on the ps1 and 2 final fantasy was kinda short though, but it is understandable.
