'Sights of Japan' is my debut short manga book!
The book has 8 pages inside of highly detailed hand-drawn artwork printed using two colours, red and black, on a Riso printer. Together the pages have been hand-sewn and trimmed with love.
Originally, I created this short manga as an entry for the Manga Jiman competition 2017. Sadly I never finished it in time to submit but I decided to finish the project anyway and after 2 years it is finally done!
I've tried to use materials that are as kind for the planet as possible:
Printing - Riso ink, made from soy and water based ink
Paper - Redeem 100% recycled, Fenner Paper
Binding - unwaxed red linen thread
Packaging - brown paper envelope with grey board back, paper bag inside + 1 sticker and complimentary card
By buying this book you are supporting my dream of being a manga artist (\(^-^)/)
