Since its small screen debut in 1982, Macross has remained one of most influential mecha anime of all time. Longtime franchise illustrator Hidetaka Tenjin captures the high-flying action of the series’ iconic “variable fighters” like no other artist through his hyper-realistic illustrations for model kits, magazines, promotional materials, and more. This volume gathers Tenjin’s illustrations from the eras of Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Flash Back 2012, Super Dimension Fortress Macross II, Macross Plus, Macross 7, Macross Zero, and the Macross Frontier TV series.

"I’ve been involved with MACROSS in a professional capacity for over two decades now, but I originally started off as a fan myself, so the prospect of bringing my art to a new international audience is something I’m extremely excited about. Hidetaka Tenjin’s Artistry of Macross not only marks my first published work outside of Japan, it’s also the first art book to be released in North America bearing the MACROSS name. While I’m more than a little nervous at the prospect, I hope that people enjoy it and that it helps to introduce them to the world of MACROSS."

-Hidetaka Tenjin
