HASH(0x9ddb80c0) out of 5 stars An Amazing Collection Jan. 8 2013
By Christopher D. Mcbride - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I truly feel badly for those that pre-ordered this and did not receive it. It seems like it was a stroke of luck for those of us who managed to get a copy, and yet there are a lot of copies up for resale out there, which is curious to say the least, as there were only 1000 made.

Anyway, I mention that only because it is a shame that many true collectors and those who appreciate Amano's work will not be able to see this incredible set. The box, books, and other included materials are made of the highest quality. The weight just screams, "I am a premium product." It is the amazing art that truly makes this an unforgettable set, however. If you are even looking at this review you would most likely have the proper appreciation for what this is, and I am preaching to the choir.

Bottom line here is that the art is worth owning. Dark Horse is re-releasing this in a stripped down format, with the main books included in the set, and I highly recommend that fans who were unable to purchase The Sky look at pre-ordering those as soon as possible in case they somehow become limited as well. As for The Sky, if you can somehow get your hands on this, regardless of price, I think it is worth it.
HASH(0x9dcef2e8) out of 5 stars An amazing collection, for those who got it April 10 2013

I had been waiting for this collection for years, ever since I found that it was such an amazing gathering of Amano's work. I was supremely lucky to get the chance to own it the first time around, and I have not been disappointed one single bit -- this set is the epitome of Amano's work, of Final Fantasy, and of video game art altogether. It is a masterwork, through and through.

You simply cannot beat Amano and this collection is perhaps his best. Even though many of the books do not include some of the more dynamic pictures that you can find in his other art collections, it is great to see nearly all of his art for the Final Fantasy series in one place.

HASH(0x9ddb8b70) out of 5 stars Treasure chest Nov. 1 2012
By K. A. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a great item: a heavy, lush, high quality set of three hardcover art books and one book about the artist, Yoshitaka Amano, himself.

These books contain some previously unreleased Final Fantasy illustrations. Most of them seem to be various illustrations from Final Fantasy VI, including but not limited to unreleased renderings of Terra in a predominantly blue outfit; a bluish Shadow and his red-and-white-striped dog, Interceptor; and Locke sporting the finest of pale pink jackets. However, most of the art you will probably have seen before in some form or another.

Oddly, this collection does not contain any of the promotional artwork Amano did for the series after Final Fantasy X. Surely some of it would have been available at the time this set was being assembled; maybe not. It's not enough of an omission for me to actually complain, though.

The extras are fun: the flip book has a little moogle going splat on one side and a ethereal woman twirling around on the other side. The acetate print is metallic silver on a clear background; I imagine it would look great framed against dark purple or blue matting. The post-cards are pretty self-explanatory and I'd probably rather frame them than use them. And there's a card with an autograph. I know people want the autograph, but it's on its own separate card and not on the books themselves. If ever a copy of this set is published without all the extras, you'll probably eventually have a chance to get the set signed in person at one comic con or another, and maybe Amano will do a quick illustration for you to go with the autograph! Still, I am glad to have mine.

I waited anxiously for this to arrive and I was not disappointed. Hopefully Dark Horse will release a stripped-down set for those who are mainly interested in the art books, which by themselves are quite beautiful and worth the price of the set.

HASH(0x9ddb9138) out of 5 stars Wonderfull collector box Oct. 27 2012
By jack - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful product, I just received my box today with surprise since it was only scheduled a week later, and I can't believe I got all of this for less than 90$ at the time I pre-ordered it. This is a long overdue occidental version of the Japanese box that went out a few years ago and sells today for crazy prices more than 1,000$, so if you also have a chance to find it don't hesitate !
Everything is so perfectly package, and the books are of great quality. If you love Amano's work you won't be disappointed !
Truly a beautiful piece of collector, I highly recommend it to any final fantasy fan as well as art enthusiasts in general.
