nishitani yoshiko


These are four of the very first Margaret Comics, all by Nishitani Yoshiko and printed in 1969.  Unlike the tankoubon published now, these books have the artwork printed directly on the cover, which is covered by a clear plastic jacket.  The jackets on these books are dirty and discolored, while the books underneath are mostly very clean.  Aesthetically I want to take the covers off because they look so filthy next to my other books, but the librarian/preservationinst in me wants to keep them as original as possible. Then again, these books are in horrible shape and were very cheap, so meh. :P
