I'm selling the limited-edition Final Fantasy artwork boxed set titled "The Sky" (Sora). These are ORIGINAL JAPANESE PRODUCTS and not bootlegs. This rare set published by DigiCube includes 3 volumes of FF-related art by Yoshitaka Amano, plus some bonus items. The books have been slightly read but everything is in excellent condition, no rips or other blemishes. This set includes:
- Vols. 1, 2, and 3 with tons of artwork of characters, monsters, scenes, equipment, and more from the first FF to FF10. Includes full-color illustrations, black-and-white line drawings, concept art, and more. Each book measures about 10.75 inches by 11.5 inches. Book 1 covers FF1-3 and is about 143 pages; book 2 covers FF4-6 and is about 275 pages; and book 3 covers FF7-10 and some additional FF art and is about 151 pages.
In the first picture linked below, at the top is the illustrated box that holds everything. This is SEPARATE from the outside cardboard shipping box. The "holder" box has Amano art of Terra on the inside and has an attached ribbon so you can lift the books out of the box.

- A book titled "All About Yoshitaka Amano" that talks about his works, inspirations, biography, interviews, etc. Also includes photos of Amano, sketches and small prints. All Japanese text. About 110 pages.
- A set of 2 postcards illustrated by Amano: one has someone that I can't recognize offhand, and the other has Terra (Tina). Each postcard measures about 8.25 by 5.75 inches.
- A cute flipbook, also illustrated by Amano. One side shows Mog doing acrobatics, the other shows a woman doing acrobatics. I don't recognize the woman as any FF character.
Picture of Amano book, postcards, and flipbook:
- A cel-type drawing of Terra (I think), done in a silvery-gray color. Measures about 10 inches by 11 inches. In the picture below, any brightness you may see at the bottom is due to the flash on my camera; it is NOT a feature of the cel itself.
This set was purchased for $350 plus shipping when it was first released; I'm asking $250 plus shipping. Please note that these items are HEAVY -- as it says on the shipping box, they weigh about 7 kg (about 15 pounds) altogether. Shipping within the U.S. is $40 via priority mail, which INCLUDES insurance; for international destinations, shipping with insurance will be even higher.
Please respond to this post if interested or if you have questions. Thanks for looking!
