An Overview of Takaya Miou’s 25-Year Career

Displayed here is a fraction of the manga that Takaya Miou has created since 1991, most published independently through her private company, NEWM;KZ. Having complete control over the techniques and materials, she has been able to produce elaborately crafted covers for her books with embossing, metallic inks, and sumptuously textured paper.

Since 2001, she has received recognition and support from major commercial publishers, but because of the creative freedom that self-publishing offers, NEWM;KZ remains as productive as ever.
