A glossy, over-sized art book by Takeshi Obata - featuring dozens of fully realized, colour pictures from his Death Note universe - will be published by Viz Media in Spring 2016.
Blanc et Noir has been available for Japanese readers since 2006. This is the first time the imprint will be in English.
The deluxe English version of Blanc et Noir has a silver-stamped presentation box. Inside there are 132 pages worth of full colour Takeshi Obata artwork. Around a third of those encapsulate his expanded vision of the Death Note world. Most spread over double pages and can be folded to create posters.
Also included are three laminated wall posters, artist commentary notes and a twelve page 'How to Draw' booklet describing how to reproduce Obata's own pictures.
Moreover, Viz Media are only printing 10,000 of their English language Blanc et Noir, so collectors of Death Note limited editions start saving your pennies now!
