FSS Fanbook "TIMESONG"

Post by Rubel Colus » Wed Jan 27, 2010 2:02 pm

Some very nice fss fan art by a Chinese fan. Look here (Chinese FSS fansite): http://bbs.fssun.net/read.php?tid=14001

They are printing a FSS fanbook to be sold in Feb during a anime fair in Guang Zhou China.

Size: 210mm×285mm
Pages: 48 color (tentative)
Artist: Archlich
Price: 50 RMB

Web sales to start in Feb. I hope they will sell to overseas... (will be asking) Any Singaporean fans who are interested in getting this book, please let me know. I'd definitely be able to get some, either by buying direct or through friends.

Looking for:

Hi guys, thanks for the interest, I'm the guy who's making the artbook. I'd like to thank Rubel Colus for posting this here for me - was planning to do so myself when the time comes, though.

I currently reside in Toronto so I understand how much trouble it means getting an Asian book (especially something from China). I plan to offer a Paypal order for the book late February or early March, once the ongoing chaos created by Chinese New Year (which usually lasts for a whole month) got cleaned up and all the parcel services are back to normal. The cost would be 50 rmb (let's convert this to US dollar later) plus shipping. This is a fanbook, or more precisely a self-published "doujinshi", which means the quantity isn't comparable to commercial works...The supply, however, will be sufficient for personal orders...

All the printing were done in Nanjing, China and will be shipped out from there. Just finished the first run of 200 books earlier this week, more will come after Next Sunday.

I managed to get my friends have the picture of actual books snapped for me. Take this as an update:

The book's all in Mandarin but I believe art, as well as our common love of FFS, is universal :)

Stay tuned, I'll be updating soon. And please feel free to ask questions! Thx.

I promise not to scan any images from the copy I order. Wouldn't want the Chinese fans to get upset with Gears Online.

Wow. I have to get some spare cash together and buy this. This are some of the best FSS fan made art I've ever seen. Simply amazing.
