Smaller versions of these made the rounds already, but I wanted highlight again Chip Kidd's amazing cover designs for Vertical, featuring their manga releases in the second half of 2007. It must be extremely exciting for Mr. Kidd to be able to play around with Takemiya and Tezuka's stunning panels and lines in sourcing his designs.
FIrst up, another series from To Terra creator and Shojo SF master, Keiko Takemiya:
Andromeda Stories Volume 1 : 9/11/07
Andromeda Stories Volume 2 : 12/11/07
Next up, the striking covers for Apollo's Song & MW, along with links to more info on each title via Tezuka Osamu World (and Japanese preview page).
Apollo's Song : 6/19/07
MW : 10/16/07
It's a great year for English fans of CLASSICS like these! Again, a major high five to Vertical for treating these books RIGHT!
