Japanese artist Kaneoya Sachiko has been active online for over a decade, creating and sharing manga and anime-inspired art that explores the monstrous and romantic, the submissive and aggressive, the inescapable... and the irresistible.

This high-quality, hardcover, bilingual volume contains over 200 pages of art, never before published in North America.  

Sachiko has fans all over the globe... And here's your chance to find out why, way ahead of the curve. You can wait until this incredible collection hits store shelves everywhere in September... or you can get your copy months before anyone else, with a few exclusive bonuses and rewards in the mix. 

Mock-up! Subject to change! But it'll probably look a lot like this.

Iron Circus Comics' first art book ever will be one of our most ambitious. We've planed a 9" x 12" hardcover volume, 224 pages long, with reticulation, pink edge gilding, and gloss. Kaneoya's art has never been showcased in such a volume, and its production specs guarantee it won't just be an art book, but a collector's item... especially if the stretch goal is achieved.

Stay tuned!

Just a small sample of the art to be found in The Art of Kaneoya Sachiko can be seen below. All this, and much more, will be featured in the book.

 And there's SO MUCH MORE than this, including a documented step-by-step creation of a painting, a ton of Kaneoya's previously-unpublished-ANYWHERE sketches, and a foreword by the author herself. You can find a wider selection of Kaneoya's work on her DeviantArt, and on her personal website.   

We're keeping it simple for now, with just three backer levels. But as this special, super-short Kickstarter progresses, we'll reveal our stretch goals.

$18 gets you The Art of Kaneoya Sachiko as a DRM-free ebook.

$35 gets you The Art of Kaneoya Sachiko as a DRM-free ebook and a hardcover copy of The Art of Kaneoya Sachiko, a beautifully-produced volume of Kaneoya's work you'll be proud to have in your collection! 

And our second $35 backer level gets you The Art of Kaneoya Sachiko as a DRM-free ebook, and a hardcover copy of The Art of Kaneoya Sachiko, with FREE domestic and HALF-PRICE international shipping!

And finally, our one and only stretch goal: SLIPCASES.

 The Art of Kaneoya Sachiko will ship with a custom slip case if this project reaches $55,000!
