(Small Notes for the issue)
This series, with motifs of stars, expresses vastness of the universe we feel while looking up at the night sky and stories originated from mysteries of stars. The first issue depicts not only 12 ecliptical constellations, but also Vega, a component of Lyra, well known as the weaver girl in Double Seventh Festival on July 7.
