Question!

O hai! Back from (unintentional) hiatus (again)!

O all-knowing f-list/circle, can anyone tell me if the recent edition of Dragon Sword and Wind Child released by Viz Media contains illustrations? And if these illustrations are in both the paperback and hardback version? (I ask the 2nd question b/c I noticed that the cover image for the hardback on Amazon mentions "illustrations by Miho [unreadable]," but the paperback version conspicuously does not.) Also, if there are illustrations, how many?

(I'm trying to decide whether to buy the book, see, since I've already read it from the library - but the library's edition is from 1993 and has a kinda meh cover and no illustrations, and if the Viz edition has illustrations I'd like to see them.)

((I would have just asked Viz Media, but their contact page only has a snail mail address wtf Viz Media it is 2011 and I am looking at your website ON THE INTERNET.))

This is seriously one of my favorite books ever.
I know I've seen illustrated versions, but the one I read didn't have them and I think they changed the translation or left things out? I remember being highly dissatisfied with it for some reason.

(which is to say I have the 1993 version)

Re: This is seriously one of my favorite books ever.
I finally managed to ask Viz and they answered (in a bizarrely condescending way, I might add) that it didn't have pictures. But... the hardback at least says "illustrations by Miho [something]," so... Idk what's up with that? :|a

I did really like the book. Ordering the second right now, actually. :D (Actually, the second book is hardback and also says "illustrations by Miho [something]" so if there turn out to be illustrations in it, I... guess that'll mean there's at least illustrations in the first hardback???)
