NostalgiaI'm enthralled by Nostalgia, Nao Tsukiji's artbook. Received it a few days ago. It was my first time ordering at cdjapan and I'm pretty glad I did. A pity they don't sell the BL magazines. You can special order them but that would put a great dent in my budget as the only shipping method is EMS so I'll continue using yesasia for them.

Ah, those illustrations in Nostalgia are so goddamn beautiful!

Everyday, I open the book randomly at a page, just to look at some gorgeous piece of art, then close it relishing that the following day, I'll open it again at another page to some other shining masterpiece.

I love the texture of the paper. It's like there's a glaze over the illustrations, making the vivid colours so very soft. It gives me a comforting feeling, wanting to sit before a fireplace with tea and biscuits on my table while I browse this artbook lazily. *sighs*

This summer, I was able to get some nice goodies from the French publishers' promotions.

Ex libris Silen love & Gate 7

I couldn't go to Japan Expo 2011, though I won in a contest the third volume of Silent Love and a lithography signed by honor-guest Takanaga Hinako. And though I'm no Clamp fan, I found the illustration of Gate 7 lithography rather pretty so I did buy the book #1 to get it. That's really a problem when you can't resist an illustration just because you find it pretty even though you don't even like the artist or aren't a fan. LOL

2 other nice goodies I got from Pika publishing house are this year's bags: X-Blade (Shiki Satoshi) and Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle (Clamp)

And finally, Asuka/Kazé have announced they are going to release a limited edition of Viewfinder #6 on November 17. They say they will print 2000 copies of the collector edition which will include Libre booklet — the one with the 3some. *cough* — at the usual price of 7.50€. They will sell the regular edition after the limited edition is sold out.
I've asked them if they intent on printing the Animate exclusive booklet too, but Asuka/Kazé replied they won't. T_T
Ah well, I should be happy nonetheless that they release a booklet without any increase in the book price.
