The Works of Ken Sugimori
The Works of Ken Sugimori: A 25 Year Portfolio from Quinty to Jerry Boy and Pokémon (杉森建の仕事 『クインティ』から『ジェリーボーイ』『ポケットモンスター』 25年間の作品集) is a retrospective artbook featuring the artistic work of Ken Sugimori and his time with Game Freak. The book will cover art from Mendel Palace (known as Quinty in Japan), which was Game Freak's debut title released in 1989 on the Nintendo Entertainment System, Smart Ball (known as Jerry Boy in Japan), released in 1991 on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System and Pokémon, Game Freak's most popular series, initially released in 1996.
Notable inclusions in the artbook include the Quinty manga, which has never been published in a collected format before, having only been published in chapter format in magazines. The collection sadly will not include a bulk of Pokémon information and artwork, as this an effort of the design team and not Ken Sugimori himself. This collection of illustrations, concept art and a 32 page long interview featuring artist Ken Sugimori will be 360 pages in length and available in Japan on May 27 for 1,998 yen.
