Hatsune Miku illustrations, like the music, are a quintessential part of what makes Hatsune Miku who she is. It’s another medium for artists to express their feelings and ideas through Hatsune Miku’s character, and there’s a lot of amazing artworks out there! Some of you might be looking to add some of these artworks to your collections, and we found three excellent art books available for order right now from overseas!
These are also official sources, so you’ll also be helping support these artists works. If you know of other great art books, feel free to share below in the comments. Just be sure to keep them official!

After we saw the announcement for Rella’s newest art book, we knew we had to share it! Rella is a highly acclaimed illustrator on Pixiv, and one of the most popular Hatsune Miku and Vocaloid artists of all time. We even interviewed her last year.

Miku Rhythm by QYS3
QYS3, much like Rella, is also a popular Hatsune Miku illustrator from China. His art themes are more diverse, and are known to range anywhere from beautiful, to cool, and even hilarious. He’s offering a really amazing bundle over on Taobao.
You can get his two newest art books “Miku Rhythm” (32 pages) and “Tales From The Thousand and One Nights” (28 pages), two keychains, and your choice from 3 different tapestry designs measuring 80x60cm. And all of this is available for just 150 Yuan, or about $23 USD! You can optionally also choose just the books, keychains or tapestries on their own if you wish.
If you don’t know how to order direct from Taobao, you can easily order the bundle using the proxy TaobaoFocus, which has great pricing and flexible shipping options to many countries.
IMPORTANT NOTE: To choose the tapestry, make sure to mention in the buyer’s notes which tapestry design you want in CHINESE. Morning Miku = 初音NEET系列, Beach Miku = 初音泳装, Bride miku = 初音私服系列.

Snow Miku 3 by Snowmi
Another artist’s book worth adding to your collection is “Snow Miku 3” by Snowmi, and the 3rd book in her “Snowmi’s Miku” series. Snowmi’s art styles are the kind that will make you think “That’s cute!” every time you turn the page.
The book features 12 color illustrations, and is available from Alicebooks for just 500 Yen ($5 USD). This makes it a good bundle item along with Rella’s newest book “Transfer”!
