The first book of Foxcraft is out now in Japan with Say-zan-sha (静山社) – フォックスクラフト アイラと憑かれし者たち. I am thrilled about this as Japan’s very own magical, shapeshifting kitsune was a huge inspiration for the series.
The Japanese edition includes a striking new cover and unique illustrations drawn by a local artist. I think it’s really beautiful – I hope you agree ☺
As I don’t read Japanese, my publishers helpfully sent me a copy of the full book jacket with notes explaining what everything means. It’s a fascinating insight into the anatomy of a book jacket so they’ve kindly allowed me to reprint it here.
The book is available through Say-zan-sha (http://www.sayzansha.com/jp/books/978-4-86389-350-4.html), online via Amazon.jp and at all good Japanese bookshops!
