New Libera Photo Book

Post by Surpinto » 1 year ago

Thanks to Yuki at twitter for putting this information out. There is a new photo book available at the HMV Japan store :D http://tinyurl.com/ztbe68f. It is another Libera-Records release. The selling price with international shipping came out to be a little over $46 (USD); that's about £30. There are no photos as yet of the book to tell us what it may look like, but I imagine that it will be based on the USJ trip and not on their upcoming Japanese concerts because the release date is in December giving no time to compile new photos and send it off for printing.

This sounds really cool. Is it something they've done before?
"And I saw a new heaven
For the first heaven
And the first earth
Are passed away.

Illumina perpetua.

And there shall be no more death
Neither sorrow
Nor crying
For these are passed away."

It would have to right? To warrant a publication? My best is on yes! :)

I do not believe so. They have had things like the "Libera Experience" book in the US but that could be described as being more magazine-like. Selling a stand alone photo book is a new thing for them; but it's being done through Libera-Records (Wisteria Project).

What ? Really ? :shock:

Come on guys, don't tell me you never heard about the photo-book 'Visions' from 2005 ?

'Visions' was squared shaped, 22 cm * 21 cm * 0,6 cm and has 68 pages.

The new Libera 2015 Photo Book is bigger, 4A shaped, and trice as thick, 30.3cm×21.5cm×1.8cm
It's looks to be a wonderful book and it must not be missed :)

It can be ordered from HMV Japan as well as from Amazon Japan :wink:

We may see people from Japan posting photos of themselves holding the book one week prior to the release day of Dec. 24.

From an email I received this morning from HMV, the photo book is possibly on sale starting Dec. 17 at a HMV shop in Tokyo (the email is in Japanese so I may be wrong translating this).

What is sure is that on Dec.22 starting at 11:00 am, the buyers of the book at that HMV shop will get a special additional photo card :)
The number is limited. I can't be there before 15:00 at the earlier, so not sure to obtain one.

Thanks to Yuki, the additional information provided by Amazon JP are :
- hard cover,
- 128 pages,
- all colours photos.

The visual of the cover can be visible in big size on Amazon Japan, 1800 * 2500 pixels.
--> http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/81Ka%2BQ9FBQL.jpg

The lower part of the cover is a bit strange regarding the rest of the cover.
Hopefully it represents only the visual of a marketing dust jacket wrapping the book.
We will know soon :)

Oh no! Maybe I was aware of it at one time but have long forgotten!! :shock: :shock: :shock: I do not recognize it but back in 2005, though I was a fan of Libera, life was more hectic and I had no time to keep up to date with such things!

Thank you for setting this matter straight. Interesting that this is also a Japanese product. Is it normal in Japan to have photo books of musical groups there more than in Europe or North America?

Thank you for the additional information about the book size and all. :D

There was a time when they issued trading cards of the Libera choristers complete with stats just like Baseball cards back in the day.

Will the captions all be in Japanese?

Looks awesome! I will be happy to inform everyone what is inside the book once my copy arrives. Assuming no one else does so before me :wink:.
