Describe the brief from the client
We were asked to design a special edition of the comic cover, that has sales over 15,000,000 books.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
We have used high quality foil (haku in Japanese). When you line all thee books up together, you can see that they are connected to each other (front and back).

Describe how you arrived at the final design
In the comic book many machines appear, so we described the machine image to the cover.
The book takes place in the Osaka prefecture.
We used the letters from "OSAKA"
"O" and "S" and "K" for each book.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
Because of the cover, its sale were more than the publisher expected, and it was reprinted so many times!
