One Beastly Beast in Japan

October 1st, 2008

A mysterious box from my childrens book agent arrived yesterday, filled with copies of One Beastly Beast, the book I illustrated in 2006, written by Garth Nix. The odd thing was that this is the Japanese edition. I didn’t know there was going to be a Japanese edition.
I’ve spent a lot of time and probably more money at Kinokuniya, the fantastic book store in Manhattan, and I’ve always loved the way Japanese design and books look. The vertical text, the use of color and surface, and even the paper stock. This edition nailed all of the above. I just love it.
It will likely be difficult to find the Japanese version around these parts, but you can still get the USA version pretty easily. Enjoy.

Japan!

August 6th, 2008

The article for Wired’s website mentioned earlier has been translated and rejiggered for some websites in other locales. Namely Brazil and Japan. The iPhone pictures on my Flickr page got an enormous amount of traffic yesterday so I checked my stats to see why. Apparently, this is the reason.
