The Japanese edition of this book (ISBN 4757730942) was originally published in 2006. Udon does a great job at translation, as usual. The book only has 144 pages so that's quite thin compared to other Udon art books.
It collects the character designs, sketches, storyboards, backgrounds, miscellaneous in game items, and interviews with the creators, producer and director Katsura Hashino and Shigenori Soejima.
The character designs are from Shigenori Soejima who designs not just this but for other Persona games as well. The character designs are in the form of coloured illustrations, sketches, in-game screenshots of poses and costume changes. Chapter 2 covers Persona and Shadow. Initial and ultimate Persona are both included.
The background art consist of sketches and the coloured version. It's a short section with 6 pages. There are only 6 colour illustrations and each is printed smaller than quarter-page size. The sketches are larger but not all sketches have coloured versions included.
There are a few pages of splash art. Some you might have seen in Shigenori Soejima Artworks SC. Not much is duplicated.
It's a good book but I feel that fans of the game and the Persona series will enjoy it more.
(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)
The art is gorgeous and all really high quality. The information is really cool for anyone into the Persona series.
It does have a couple of small typos but it's the art you're here for so it doesn't really matter.
