In 2005 I produced a book called Hachidori.
It is a short story (six sentences) with ten pages of Haida manga illustrations--as well as some essays on ecological activism.
As of Sept. 2006 we have sold 100,000 copies. As well on Aug. 23rd we began Japan's number three best seller on Amazon Japan.
We have also enjoyed significant television, newspaper and radio exposure. In fact Tokyo's number one rated radio show (for the 20 year old crowd) is called Hummingbird and they begin their show by reading the Hachidori story.
We are now planning on releasing the book into Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macao.
