"formcode"Range murata 3rd drawing works limited
ISBN: 4898299881; Publisher: Wani Magazine Sha; Pubdate: 2006; Hardcover; Language: Japanese


Form|code is, in a word, sophisticated. The collection comes in a sleek plastic slipcase whose design matches the design of the cover of the collection itself, which is held together by locking rings. This four-ring binder design, a signature design of sorts for Murata-san, is both classy and functional, and it also allows for some creative touches that wouldn’t be possible in a more traditional binding. For example, unlike the “regular” Limited Edition copies, the Wani Special Limited Edition came with a special print that was signed and numbered by Range Murata himself that can be easily inserted into the binder.
The artwork itself is divided into three sections, the first of which are the twenty-four color prints that are the showcase of the collection, each reproduced individually on heavy paper. As in futurythm, these prints feature characters (mostly female) from the entire spectrum of Range Murata’s creative vision, from the mundane to the fantastic. It is amazing how much detail he is able to capture and how much emotion he is able to convey in each of the prints, from coquettish playfulness to profound melancholy, much of it reflected in the extraordinarily expressive eyes of his subjects alone. While there are quite a large number of talented character designers in Japan, certainly none are quite as good as Range Murata at capturing feeling in the gaze of individual characters.
After the prints come selections of promotional artwork, from posters, magazine covers, calendars, and the like. Of particular note are fold-out enlargements of the covers to the first four volumes of the Robot art anthology, which Range Murata compiles and which lists prominent manga-ka such as Yoshitoshi ABe as contributors. The third section highlights some recent non-character art works of Range Murata, from a small folder full of concept sketches, including an Ikea-style layout featuring a chair featured in one of his prints, to a catalog of clothing and accessories that he has designed.
As a bonus, there are two books inserted at the end: after service, a collection of sketches that appeared in Kairakuten, the weekly Wani magazine, from June 2001 to May 2003, and futuregraph, a collection of color works that appeared in Kairakuten from June 2003 to February 2006.

Thank to Eugene from Minuial.net by this excellent review.
