The anime studio Shaft updated its official website to confirm that its two-volume Puella Magi Madoka Magica Production Note archive book set will go on general sale in late September.

The book set measures 268 x 195 x 47 millimeters (about 10.5 x 7.6 x 1.9 inches) and 1.629 kilograms (3.59 pounds).

Each set contains a B5-sized illustration sheet by character designer Takahiro Kishida, while the limited first edition will add a postcard and a bookmark designed by Gekidan Inu Curry, as well as a separate bookmark of the character Kyubey. Each set costs 5,500 yen (about US$72).
