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.


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.

All detailed records of Shin Godzilla will be released in a luxurious hardcover bookbinding!

Shin Godzilla, the latest work in the Godzilla series for the first time in 12 years, will be released on July 29, 2016.

The script / general director is Hideaki Anno, the director / special effects director is Shinji Higuchi, and the cast is Hiroki Hasegawa, Yutaka Takenouchi, and Satomi Ishihara. The catch phrase is "Reality (Japan) vs. Fiction (Godzilla)". This is a new work expected by the Japanese movie industry. A book that shows all of how the movie Shin Godzilla was born and made will be released!

It is an art book and photo book that contains design drawings, image boards, material photos, etc. drawn for the production of Shin Godzilla, and is an official record book that also contains plenty of staff interviews and making records. Exclusive long interview with Hideaki Anno!

It is a record of the battle of modern video creators that can be read by everyone who loves and enjoys movies, not just fans of ancient and modern Godzilla. Between the outer box and the main body is the "completed script" in the appendix! All the same content as the main part of the movie is recorded, including the dialogue, writing, and telop! Of course, the cast table with the title and title is included.

Includes 6 types of plots and screenplays written and revised by Hideaki Anno dozens of times, including planning memos!
