Available for pre-order, Etsuko Miura's new book "Eucharist" is set to arrive to AkaTako March 7 +/-. The special edition is limited to only 50 pieces and is being made now. Not quite ready for pre-order on AkaTako but here's a little preview of the handmade leather cover!
|"Eucharist" regular edition||"Eucharist" special edition (not available yet!)|
Orders for the regular edition will be shipped as soon as the book is received. Additional details and a link to the special edition will be posted as soon as information is confirmed.
New shipment of hard to find books arrived a few days ago and they've all been restocked and ready to buy again. Most of these are out of print and pretty hard to find - there's also a couple brand new books that have been added to AkaTako. Enjoy!
My Fair Fat Lady Vol 1
A little note on Toshio Saeki - the artist is no longer signing copies of his books so the signed ones are increasingly hard to come by.
Six new Namio Harukawa drawings are now available by special order. Each of the six are a bit more extreme in their content and all of them have pink and red color accents. The very rare "My Fair Fat Lady Vol. 1" is also back in stock!
