Folio Society’s new collectible book: Japanese Tales just published

It’s my blood, sweat and tears! (Ok, maybe not blood, lol). I am crying with joy! I had put so much effort and love into: Japanese Tales (edited by Royall Tyler) just got published from Folio Society today.
Folio Society, as some of you may know, is a well acclaimed London based book publisher who is behind so many award-winning designs. Japanese Tales is an oversized, silver embossed, slipcased, collectible edition.
I have created, total of 8 full color interior illustrations (4 full page and 4 double page), as well as design for cloth jacket and end papers. All of which are brand new and specifically created for this project, and shown for the very first time today.
The book is sold EXCLUSIVELY through Folio Society online store (sorry, no Amazon).  They ship world-wide.

Please check Folio Society online store for Japanese Tales and many other gorgeous books too choose from.
Thank you art director Raquel Leis Allion, as well as my assistant Tatiana Cordoba to make this project happen.
