Beautiful Scenes From a Fantasy World
Background Illustrations and Scenes from Anime and Manga Works
Edited by PIE International
Publisher: PIE International; Bilingual edition
Release date: May 1, 2018

I had the pleasure of running into Smith Publicity, representing PIE International, Inc, a Japanese publisher known for their gorgeous art and design books, at Book Con earlier this month. One of the dazzling titles that caught my eye was Beautiful Scenes From a Fantasy World: Background Illustrations and Scenes from Anime and Manga Works. The cover alone is magical, with gorgeous color amidst a magical scene of caring (look closely). This book displays beautiful fantasy world art, each that tells its own story.

More below.

Part of the Everyday Scenes from Parallel Worlds series, this book is ethereal and so detailed, the artists using color to covey mood. One of my favorites is shirakaba’s “Spider Web” which makes one feel as if you could fall into the abyss, taking depth perception to another level. Reishin’s works are particularly gorgeous. I feel like I could stare for hours and still not take it all in.

Anyone who loves anime and manga must get this book for their collection.


Have you ever imagined living in a fantasy world? Beautiful castles, islands floating in the air, a ride on an airship or resting with the fairies under a mushroom umbrella? Then this book is for you. Beautiful Scenes from a Fantasy World is the second title in the Everyday Scenes from Parallel Worlds series. It showcases background artworks featuring fantasy worlds: celestial castles, pirate ships sailing through the clouds, retro-futuristic inventions, deserted architectural spaces, towns that have sunk under the ocean, an enchanted forest, and a space locomotive that runs in a neo-futuristic world. Featuring only a few anthro angels, dragons and other imaginary animals, attention is focused primarily on the beauty of the illustrated backgrounds from popular anime, manga and game creators.

The fantasy illustrations in this collection are beyond your wildest imaginings and will surprise and inspire all kinds of art lovers. It might even make you look at the world differently.
