Description

Like "The Art Book", this book will be a kind of manga directory: a list of 350 of the most important people in manga (from beginning to present day) arranged in alphabetical order. This would include: directors, producers, composers, scriptwriters and characters, in other words, all the important people that make up manga. For example, there will be entries on Hayao Miyazaki, Osamu Tezuka, Doraemon, Totoro, etc. Each person will be given a one-page entry in which there will be text that explains who they are and their contribution to manga. Each entry will also include: up to five pictures (photographs, film stills, drawings, posters, sequences, etc.) and basic information about the related series or film (original Japanese title, English title, date of creation, director, studio, and number of episodes or duration) or person (select filmography). To satisfy the more academic readers and contributors, the book would also include 15 short essays on themes related to manga. These entries will also be illustrated and will be on single pages, gathered at the end of the book. This book will be accessible for the general market and also a great book for experts. The beauty of the structure is that it is accessible and informative, most of all easy to use.
