The Art of Shin Godzilla (ジ・アート・オブ・シン・ゴジラ,   Ji Āto Obu Shin Gojira) is a 2016 informational book detailing the development of Toho's Shin Godzilla.

Information

The Art of Shin Godzilla, published by Ground Works and released on December 29, 2016, has 560 pages containing over 70,000 characters, hundreds of images, the revisions to the script of the film, along with unused scenarios, staff interviews, and more.

The Art of Shin Godzilla comes inside a white box with a "The Art of Shin Godzilla" sticker. Inside the box is a black container that contains the book, alongside a booklet containing the script for the film (which comes in a cardboard container), two double-sided posters, a flyer promoting the Evangelion Store, and a bookmark promoting the Godzilla Store. With all of this inside the box, it weighs 3.55 kilograms (7.8 lbs).

The book, reading from left to right, comes with a dust jacket which depicts Godzilla's back and tail, while the actual book's hardcover binding is black and featureless except for a small ジ・アート・オブ・ゴジラ imprinted on the front cover on the upper left. The inner cover of the book, both front and back, shows Godzilla's DNA map created by Goro Maki in the movie.
