(Seite auf englisch, weil das Buch ebenfalls englisch ist…)

Have you ever noticed that there are sometimes stereotypes of people you’ll meet at every Aikido seminar? Now imagine what kinds of animals they would be. Sounds funny, right?

That’s what I thought, too, so I actually started to draw them with the goal of getting 31 done for inktober2019. But more and more of them came to mind or were suggested by Aikidoka around the world, until now I have collected more than 50 of them.

And because so many people were asking for it, I put them into a book and funded it with a kickstarter campaign.

By now, all the book copies I had left from the kickstarter print run are gone.

But the book is now published and has it’s own ISBN number – or actually 3 numbers:

Square format: 978-3347000810,
Long format: 978-3347015692,
Paperback: 978-3347015685

I published it with Tredition, a German on-demand publisher. German speakers (or anyone who can navigate a German online shop) can BUY THE BOOK RIGHT HERE.

If you do buy a book somewhere, or know somebody who does, I would very much appreciate feedback on the quality of the print in different countries (like, how thick is the paper, what kind of binding do they use, are the pictures even in color…?) because I’ve been told that it varies a lot, and I have no way to test this myself.

Also, here’s some posters and shirts and stuff: Aikido Animals Store

Here are all the animals and their descriptions. You can download and use them for free, but if you do, please consider donating some small amount to a charity of your choice. I’m supporting the WWF, because I think it goes quite well with the animal topic… 😉
