My Japanese Sketchbook
Author: Cloe Fontaine

ISBN: 9782080304346
Format: Hardcover
Number Of Pages: 136
Published: 26 May 2004

From kimonos to manga, this sketchbook offers a refreshing look at Japan in charming watercolours 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 colour.

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.
