Magnetic Press Announces Mongolian Wind – The Art of Lu Ming
Multiple Eisner Award-nominated publisher Magnetic Press has announced the upcoming publication of Mongolian Wind, an amazingly illustrated artbook by creator Lu Ming, who is celebrated as the representative of Chinese realist comics.
Few artists are as complete as Lu Ming. Known for his hyper-realistic comics and his universe inspired by both medieval (Chinese and European) and music (he is also a professional guitarist and drummer), this collection is a look at his paintings, advertising illustrations (for which he won a Palme d’or at the Cannes Lion festival in 2008), storyboard and conceptual design work for feature films (including the legendary Tsui Hark’s Flying Sabers), and his sculptures (including the monumental Desert Grade presented at the Burning Man festival in Nevada).”
Lu Ming, the first Chinese illustrator to win a Gold Lion at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, created Mongolian Wind because he felt the need to properly represent Chinese culture and history properly to the world.
For these important reasons, Mongolian Wind is being released in May 2021 in celebration of Asian American Heritage Month. This artbook will contain 120 pages and presented in a gallery-sized 9×12″ premium hardcover with spot UV and curved corners and is already available for pre-order at 21% off bring the price down to only $15.99 from the cover price of $19.99.
