Robotech Art 2

Robotech Art 1 is reference book that contained original artwork, Japanese production designs, and episode guides from the Robotech television series, and was released in 1986. It was very similar to the Japanese Roman Album or This is Animation series of art books, and contained a twenty-page essay on the origins of Robotech. The book was considered a valuable resource, despite a number of factual errors, for the growing fandom of anime during the 1980's. It was published by Starblaze Graphics, an imprint of The Donning Company until it went out of business.

Robotech Art 1 recaptures the action, the adventure -- the fun of one of the most popular animated programs on television today!
