Yoshitaka Amano's Mateki: The Magic Flute - Yoshitaka Amano,  Edmund Shern This is beautiful art and story by Amano, based upon Mozart's opera. The book is a pleasure - the finest sort of coffee table book, and I don't mean to diminish it in any way by suggesting it should reside on a coffee table. The art invites the viewer to spend time on each picture, to decipher a story so sparsely told with words, that you must absorb the pictures to see the story, which is good vs. evil, love, and now with the art, just a tiny pinch of creation myth, in true Japanese style.
