Comentários Any japanese artbooks larger than A4 size (40cm x 30cm prefered)

  • Thanks heaps for the suggestions guys :)

    I decided to go with the Carmine artbook, I actually always wanted it and totally forgot about buying it, so 2 birds with 1 stone hehe! Haven't thought of calendars before but it definitely could be worth looking into as most of them are light.

    I will start looking at using other proxies as well. In the past I've used ShoppingmallJapan, GoodyJapan and Sendico. I found FromJapan is significantly cheaper because they don't charge any packaging or consolidation fees, don't charge any extra 3-5% for paying using paypal like most proxies do, and I get 10% off EMS shipping fees due to my current membership status. Eventually might be able to find one out there with good packaging service and competitive fees.

    You could always buy a large calendar. I remember seeing a D Grayman calendar at Animate in the box and it was flat, not rolled. That could work, it's relatively cheap (I believe no more than 2500 yen) and light (only 12 pages + cover and back).

    The calendar in question: ITEM #475283
    It's A2 size, but I'm sure you can find something that works for you :)

    Act1 ano atrás#41242222Have you considered just using another proxy? That seems like a much less intensive process that doesn't involve buying something you don't want.
    Like many seem to agree (based on the upvotes), even if you manage to find a "cheap" artbook, the additional proxy costs are quite a waste.

    Also some proxy's offer additional protective packing for extra cost, maybe you could ask again if FromJapan could do this as well?

    Sorry that I can’t help more, but hopefully you’ll get the artbooks undamaged!

    ITEM #46454 is A3 and for what you're getting is generally quite affordable but you're really going to struggle to find anything larger than A4 for below 2k yen.

    I'm not sure about cheap but these arbooks are pretty large but heavy: ITEM #43788 & ITEM #46394

    Alternatively I had this artbook that should be light and cheap to find and it's A3 sized ITEM #87971

    Good luck

    Anything below 2,000 yen would be good :)

    Define what you consider is cheap in price.
