IDW has announced that it will publish the Art of Armitage, a trade paperback at $19.99, with 96 color pages on the Pioneer anime series.  It will feature never-before-seen production art from both Armitage III:  Poly Matrix and Armitage III:  Dual Matrix, as well as character designs and turnarounds, weapon and machine design, backgrounds, production sketches, and more. 


IDW thus joins Viz (see 'Viz to Publish Two Gundam Trades in March') and Guardians of Order (see 'New Schedule for Anime Fan Guides') as a publisher of trade paperbacks featuring the art of anime for North American audiences.
