So apparently VIZ is re-releasing Hayao Miyazaki’s Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind in a deluxe boxset this November. It’ll be broken into two hardcover volumes, 1104 pages total, with color pages and an exclusive poster.
I’m curious because while I read the first two volumes from the local library years ago, I never went beyond that. And I’ve seen numerous pages from the series since I joined Tumblr, all of them gorgeous. So I’ve wanted to buy the books for a while, and a deluxe edition seems like a great way to do it, especially since it’d be cheaper than buying the individual volumes.
But I’m a little leery. There still isn’t any listing of the dimensions of the book from what I’ve seen (and previous collected editions shrunk the books a good deal), and based on the Amazon pages for the individual books, it seems a little short on pages (the total page count based on Amazon’s listings should be 1232 pages, compared to the box set’s 1104).
Either way, I have my eye on this.
