Yutaka Izubuchi 30th Anniversary Art Book

Izubuchi participated in mecha design on the TV series, then took it over for a substantial revision on the Crest of Iron OAV. Published in 2008, this 2-volume large format hardcover examined his entire career up to that time, which stretched across anime, live-action, illustration, and manga. He would later go on to direct high-quality remakes of Toward the Terra and Space Battleship Yamato.

His work for Galient was included in the “Design Works” volume of this set. Pages are shown below.
