CLAMP to design original “Goshuinchō” book

It’s been announced that a Goshuinchō book designed by CLAMP will be released in October.

From Wikipedia:

A shuin (朱印) is a seal stamp given to worshippers and visitors to Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples in Japan. The seal stamps are often collected in books called shuinchō (朱印帳) that are sold at shrines and temples.

More info: Shuin.

The first time CLAMP spoke about their desire of designing their own Goshuinchō book was during the 14th episode of their former radio show, CLAMP no Kyoto Agaru Sagaru.

Quoting Jougetsu:

Most temples sell their own (go-)shuin books for worshipers to buy. They are covered in cloth and are bound accordion style so that you can open the book and display the temple stamp & calligraphy on the family shrine/altar shelf. In recent years fashion designers and artists have designed their own (go-)shuin book covers and those can be found at various shops (bookstores/stationery stores/lifestyle goods shops).

This looks interesting! I have a feeling this is going to be one gorgeous book with traditional Japanese-style design.

More info as they come!

Kodansha will release a limited edition HiGH&LOW g-sword Goods Box with the following contents:

  • 2 acrylic stands, with new drawing by CLAMP (picture on the right);
  • 1 masking tape;
  • 1 ticket holder, with new drawing by CLAMP;
  • 6 postcards.

I’m assuming the postcards won’t feature new illustrations by CLAMP, considering nothing is mentioned about it. It will probably feature the few color illustrations that we’ve seen so far, including the postcard that came as an appendix in Weekly Shonen Magazine earlier this year.

HiGH&LOW g-sword Goods Box will be released on September 15 costing 2,980 yens.

Pre-order it at Amazon.jp | CD Japan.

And while we are at it, to promote the release of the film HiGH&LOW THE MOVIE 2 / END OF SKY, which opens on August 19 in Japanese cinemas, CLAMP recently drew the poster featuring the characters in chibi-style:
