I can hardly believe it happened but the world now has "Taiwan's Traditional Chinese Edition" of BEASTS! Book One. Remarkably, this is the first Fantagraphics book ever translated into Chinese and I couldn't be happier that the publisher included Beasts! in the small roster of books that makes up their debut "Graphic Novelty" line. (Iconic works "Jimmy Corrigan" and "Blankets" are among them.) It's a privilege to have the book translated for a wider audience and they really did a wonderful job on the repackaging. It feels more like an exhibition catalog than a coffee table book but that works for this material.
The publisher's site is here. Some pleasantly odd production photos are here. Most importantly, a pretty awesome video trailer is found here.
I'm afraid that I have no idea how to get ahold of copies stateside.
