Friendly reminder that this was all drawn by hand. And it is fabulous.
- Since people are not sure, this manga is called Otoyomegatari, or A Bride’s Story and it is by Kaoru Mori. It is a Seinen historical work, that is stunningly drawn, and beautifully researched. This same author also drew and wrote Victorian Romance Emma, another amazing, historic series and my personal favorite of her works.
All works by this author are great to read.
YES. I have all five of the books to this series so far, and if you’re an aspiring artist or just love manga, BUY IT. The story is great, but the art is stunning. That picture of the carved wood panels, 2nd from the bottom doesn’t do the actual justice - EVERY FREAKING DETAIL is visible in those carvings.
This series is architectural/period clothing porn, just so you know.
