I doubt at this point there's any fan left out there who's unaware of the release of the art book Tsubasa ALBuM De REProDUCTioNS 2. The second art book for the Tsubasa Resevoir Chronicles series was released November 14th and retails for ￥1890. With the series having finished this past October, this will likely be the last installment. It's always sad when long running manga end, but at the same time, I'm excited to see what CLAMP will do next ^^
The first Tsubasa ALBuM De REProDUCTioNS as of December 9th, was re-published in the U.S. so you can actually buy it on Amazon for $13.59. I'm always amazed at how low the prices can go for the art books here, it's as if no one buys them >_<
While the first art book collected all the art and deluxe covers from the first 14 volumes, with art from the calendars, and goods, Tsubasa ALBuM De REProDUCTioNS 2 does the same except with the later volumes of the series up to volume 28, and last calendar.
Though you'll have seen the majority of the illustrations before in one way or another, their previous incarnations were lower quality prints, like those from magazines, or covered in text in the manga volumes. With the detail that goes into so much of CLAMP's art work, I'm sure they'd want to be able to show it in full and uncluttered.
The book is also very heavy for its size--A4 and 111 pages--because of the high quality and quite thick paper used for the pages. There isn't a lot more to say for this book, because the people who would buy it know they content because they've probably been following the series ^^;
All the illustrations are in full color; none of the black and white ones are included. The index is printed with thumbnails in black and white, but gives details on where all the illustrations were first published. There are also 11-pages of a black and white manga extra, but unlike with the first art book, it's not exclusive to this book.
Even with the size and quality of Tsubasa ALBuM De REProDUCTioNS 2, the price still manages to stay low. And considering the popularity of Tsubasa Resevoir Chronicles I wouldn't be surprised if this one also gets published in the U.S. at a later date.
