The Japanese Manga style of illustration has become extremely popular in the Unites States in the last several years. Young artists have taken to this form and have a great interest in learning about it. This book offers lessons focusing on using photographs as a basis for illustrations in the manga style but not all manga is the same. There are six distinct styles — Shounen, Shoujo, Seinen, Josei, Kodomo, and Chibi. Each of these has a section in the book and each is explained, followed by five different drawing lessons including how to do a comic strip in that style. The projects include things like drawing custom sports equipment, drawing yourself in a Japanese school uniform, drawing yourself as a samurai, drawing yourself as a fairy tale princess, or drawing your food in a cute style. Each of the lessons shows a photograph that is used as the starting point followed by several drawings and explanations of the steps to get to the final project.

The writing is clear and concise, and the drawing examples are excellent. Any young artist interested in Manga will treasure this exceptional book.
