Gundam Century! Long out of print from the defunct OUT magazine (uh, not a
magazine about alternate lifestyles) it features a number of the creators of
Macross just BEFORE they turned pro!
 Included are a VERY NICE painted short story by Haruhiko Mikimoto (Macross
character designer) "Whitebase Live" with a bath scene with all the female
WB crew and a panties raid caper! Have to be seen. Also contains many
mecha drawings by Kawamori Shouji, the father of the Valkyrie!

This is the work that showed how big an influence Gundam had on the creators
of Macross, and you can see the foundation from which Macross sprung.

This groundbreaking tome actually laid the foundation for most of the
minosky particle physics that is considered canon now (since it was only
mentioned in passing in the actual TV series).

My original book was priceless, now maybe a little less so but I'm glad more
fans would have the chance to see this book.
