Bibliofile: 遺書と地下聖堂

We were going through the archives this weekend and we came across our Japanese file, which turned out to only be a few notes about the Japanese editions of the books that came out a few years ago.

A group called Artist House published the first eight books in the Lewis Barnavelt series (House through Beast) and Shueisha Publishing published three of the Johnny Dixon books.

What we found in the archives were links to some sort of online promotion at the Shueisha Publishing site. The first is for The Mummy, the Will, and the Crypt – which has a nice, colorful spread of the Staunton Harold estate by artist Hiroyuki Yamada; the second is for The Spell of the Sorcerer’s Skull; and the third is The Revenge of the Wizard’s Ghost.

As no one in the office can read the characters, we’re not really sure what the clickable portions of the site say, much less where they lead to. But we think we’ve found samples of the books as well as some games.

And with that, it’s back to the archives.

Very neat, but a bit bizarre.

BTW: Love this blog!
