Thanks, Karen, for putting it up on the wiki. I found the publisher's page (FINALLY!) here:


The binding/formatting was done by ONO Risa (Lisa?) 装幀:大野リサ]

Cover design or cover image: 装画:アリストレーター

Which seems to be a pun: Alice Traitor? (Allus trator? ie: Illus trator) 

Maybe be associated with Bird Graphics, and apparently gives workshops. (She tweets.) 

I can't do anything today or this weekend, but if you remind me on Monday, I 
could shoot her a tweet and see if I can get anything out of her as far
as the romanization of her name.

Can you read the name of the cover artist here? I've gotten up the rest of
the information that I normally collect (translator, isbn, publisher, date,
title), but I don't see that on the page and I suspect it needs
click-throughs to find.
