A beautiful book with illustrated endpapers, cloth spine, unmarked.

Temples and tatamis, parasols and teaports, fountains and water lilies - every striking detail comes to life on these pages."

More Description

From kimonos to manga, this sketchbook offers a refreshing look at Japan in charming watercolors depicting temples in Kyoto and the striking modernist architecture of Tokyo, women in elaborate traditional kimonos and girls in eccentric pop culture fashions. This is Japan today, rendered by a watercolorist's eye in vibrant yet soothing poetry of color.
"My Japanese Sketchbook" is a highly personal account of a country that exerts great fascination in the West. Fontaine's fresh text and contemporary sketches capture the essence of this land of contrasts and contradictions perfectly.
