(W) Kyusaku Yumeno (A) Honojirotowoji
A beautiful book that can be enjoyed both as a short story and an artbook. During a trip, Ensan is reunited with his old friend Li, but his once beautiful appearance has completely changed... This mystical tale of a man transformed into a tiger is rooted in a story dating from the Tang dynasty, but feels totally immediate thanks to Nakajima's masterful adaptation and Nekosuke's gorgeous original art. At once lyrical and philosophical, Nakajima's story is a timeless classic now made available to contemporary audiences thanks to the Maiden's Bookshelf series.
