Description

This example-packed overview of contemporary Japanese illustration showcases the works of 100 of Japan’s most successful and exciting artists and designers. The images embrace a huge range of styles, from traditional to futuristic, from classic ukiyo-e prints to the worlds of manga and anime. Some look towards urban street culture or build their own surreal dreamscapes, while others revisit a playful world of childhood innocence or explore darker realms of violence and terror. The book also includes ten interviews in which the illustrators discuss their work and what inspires them. The range of amazing images and subjects in this book is hugely memorable, an exciting journey to the utterly idiosyncratic but wonderful world of the Japanese sensibility.
