Amazon recently dropped the price of the "Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, Box Set" from $51 to 38$. I immediately ordered a set and it just arrived this morning. The free shipping said 5-8 business days for free shipping..it only took 2.
I don't buy a lot of things, but I will spend money on oil paints and books; and this book is worth every penny. It comes in a slipcase with two hard-bound volumes with the complete manga. It even has a few bonuses: a beautiful two-sided poster, illustrated maps and some information about the character design.
You can read the entire manga online, but if you're like me and you hate reading online, this is book is perfect. It's also printed in the original sepia toned ink on traditional manga paper. My next wish is that the publisher, Viz media, (also made "Starting Point, 1979-1996", by Miyazaki) would translate some more of his original manga into English..
I highly recommend this book to anyone who's looking for a beautifully illustrated epic manga. The story and artwork is unmatched.
