Aoi Nishimata Illustrations VIVID is aptly titled, as the first impression I had of the book was that it was marvelously colorful, with its decorated characters ranging from school girls, to princesses to angels ^^ As the first commercial illustration only collection from Aoi Nishimata, VIVID does an excellent job of showcasing her work over the years, without concentrating extensively on any one time period. Instead, outstanding art works from all years were included, going as far back as the year 2000.
Aoi Nishimata Illustrations Nocturne was the second doujinshi art book Nishimata released via her circle Joker Type for Comiket 72. Up until the release of her commercial art book, VIVID, this was really the most recent collection of Nishimata's illustrations. There have been other commercial productions, but none that were all illustrations.
