See you there!

________________________

"The night sky is black, shrouded with a fog of soot and toxins. The gears of China's industrial revolution turn, unceasing, manufacturing the wants of an entire world. The consequences soar upwards until the lights of the heavens have dimmed and vanished altogether…

But there will be stars this night.

The Knites have made it their mission bring the stars back to the night in China, hanging from the tails of kites. Some call it foolishness; others will find hope in the Knites' work. Hope that someday the shroud will lift, and people will see beyond the towering monoliths of industry and gaze upon the true stars once more."

Both my mom and I bought it for each other at Christmas. Italy (Happy) [V1] Italy (Joy) [V1] 

It was kinda awkward, but hey. Whatever.

I live in germany and I bought it two years ago. If it's still on sale I don't think shipping should be a problem. hope that helps you a bit?

Are there any possibilities of ordering a book and having it sent to Argentina? And, what price would that have? I really love your work. The way you colour your art is just, IMPOSIBLE. There won't come a day I can do anything similar. I really love it. Hugs!

鉴于你肯定看得懂中文,我决定不打英文了……实话说,看完这个漫画,各种感受。第一眼被吸引,不仅是细腻的画风和色彩的梦幻,还有这个主题涉及传统那一块,这是我第一次看到有关风筝的漫画故事,虽然不算很新颖的故事情节,但分镜确实很棒。如果有一天你会在中国出版这个作品,我一定会购买的!~~加油!!!

Does it have the extra scenes along with it? Or go up to chapter five?

since it's "book 1" it covers exactly the story of "chapter 1" which you can see here on deviantart as well.
there are two additional pages with the character statistics of the two mains. also a two pages long mini comic & 4 pages with an authors note + an explanation about the kite designs.
the book is hardcover as shown in the photos and each page is high quality printed.
i'd say it's totally worth the money and I'm so happy that I got one of the first 500 books with an autograph <3
hope that answers your question? 
was really surprised that someone answered on my comment cause it's already 2 years old hahaha XD

I'm glad it was helpful!! :D and no problem. I have free time right now so I check deviantart almost daily that's why I noticed your comment so quickly haha xD
just one more thing: I'm not entirely sure if the book is still on sale or not because their was a certain amount of copies and it's been two years. that's all.
have a nice day! :D
