posted on 2009-11-20 19:22 EST
The North American publisher Yen Press reports that it will offer a limited-edition dust jacket with the original Japanese edition's cover illustration for Isuna Hasekura's Spice and Wolf light novels to participating online retailers. Retailers "who choose to participate in this offer will be shipped the flat (uncreased) jackets to make them available at no additional charge to anyone ordering copies of the novel through their sites."
The first volume of the novels will ship with a different cover artwork aimed at the North American mass-market readers. Yen Press had planned to bundle the slip jacket with the original Japanese artwork exclusively with the December issue of Yen Plus magazine before deciding on the additional online release.
All of the original interior illustrations will be in the Yen Press English edition.
