My Journey II - Japanese

£14.99

Product description

Published in 1978 by Fukuinkan Shoten, Tokyo. Pictorial boards (no dust jacket). Although the title and text on last page is in Japanese, this is a picture book of farms and fields, villages and towns. Anno's own version of Breugel's journey to England.

Mitsumasa Anno (born 1926) is a Japanese illustrator and writer of children's books, known best for picture books with few or no words. He received the international Hans Christian Andersen Medal in 1984 for his "lasting contribution to children's literature." Anno is best known for wordless picture books featuring small, detailed figures. In the "Journey" books, a tiny character travels through a nation's landscape, densely populated with pictures referencing that country's art, literature, culture, and history. Anno's illustrations are often in pen and ink and watercolour. They are intricately detailed, showing a sense of humour as well as an interest in science, mathematics, and foreign cultures. They frequently incorporate subtle jokes and references. Anno's style has been compared to that of M. C. Escher.

In very good condition throughout. No dust jacket.
