I really can't wait to see Yoshitoshi ABe at Anime Central and was was wondering if the autograph policy of "Guests only autograph officially licensed products" would include his artbook. It's an imported artbook from Haibane Renmei. I don't know if it's considered "licensed" since it isn't something like a game or dvd so I just wanted to make sure.

A product being licensed goes beyond just games or dvds. Licensed being that they have permission to produce a product using an intellectual property as its subject matter. I have no doubt you'll be fine.

Basically what that means is that they won't sign bootlegged products or fanart. I assume you have the actual official release of the artbook and not a bootlegged copy (do they even bootleg artbooks? I have no idea), so you're fine. Also I am jealous that you have that artbook.

Ah, thanks for the help. The artbook should be official as I bought it at a con years ago and it really would be weird to sell/make bootleg artbooks. And...sorry to feuerwerke for making you jealous. >_<

Hell, I'm jealous. I collect art books from illustrators and managaka, and I don't have one from ABe. At any rate, there should be no issue getting an art book signed. Those are about as official as official gets.
