StarNouveau (3 kuukautta sitten) #18834462omg thank you so much for this!!;_; i haven't been able to find a good price for it yet--but i've been searching for this book for a while now and it's defiantly been on my to buy list! but what made me hesitant was just not knowing the amount of pages and the contents within it. but now i know so it'll make my decisions on buying it a lot easier! again thank you so much and congrats on getting it!!^_^ <3
I'm really glad this blog was useful! :) Don't worry you'll definitely find one if you keep looking! Around the time I bought this one from Manda--there was an auction on Yahoo for a good price (I believe 3500 yen) and it was relisted twice since no one bid on it. So I really believe anyone can find it if they make it a habit to look daily! :D Oh I totally recommend getting it if you have the chance! It's truly beautiful, and I'm sure the new artbook is as well :D I think what makes it even more wonderful, is that it's hardcover. There's just something different about artbooks being hardcover versus softcover, since most nowadays fall under the latter (not that it's bad, but it makes the book much more delicate). (omg I just looked at your book collection in your profile! *____* I see Candy Candy! and many oldies!<3) I see you have item #509880 ! It's my turn to ask someone now xD If I may know, how's the book like? I don't know anything about it ;; (I'm so sorry for peeping at your profile ;;;;;)

OMG I'm happy to hear you got the new one!! I was looking at some pics online and it looks like they added some monochrome pieces in there so now I'm like *______* "...must get it but I'll wait for now..." haha
Congrats on getting it! It looks lovely~ (esp that cover, it's so beautiful! ; V ;)


Yeah! the monochrome manuscript pieces are really cool. You can see all the details that don't come out in the levelled, completed pages of the manga. Thank you for taking the time to post all these pictures btw I find it very important! Looking hard for the art book but hopefully one under 100 bucks pops up soon;;; dam you were so lucky ><

Congratulations on getting the book! It's so beautiful. *w* I love Kaze to Ki no Uta (and Takemiya Keiko's work in general) and the Victorian feel to the art style has been such an influence in my own work. And thank you for posting the pages!

Thank you so much! I was very curious as to what such an old, pricey book could contain, it's absolutely stunning~
I'm very happy you were able to get it, and really glad such a rare item was able to be properly documented. :3

Congratulations on getting the art book!

And thank you so much for posting all the pictures of the book! Everything is so beautiful I wouldn't know where to start! The colors are awe-inspiring and the details in Takemiya's linework, ahhhh... I'm curious what materials were used to create each illustration. KazeKi's art always looks so ethereal.

It's fun to note that some of the more famous KazeKi illustrations come from this book! Thanks so much for sharing!

Thank you for this review. It is not my favourite type of art but it is really pretty anyway :)
And most of all THANK YOU for linking your previous reviews, I wasn't aware that Old Xian had an artbook!!! I was even ready to print some illustrations myself! I need it so much now that I know, I will try to order it on taobao.
