This book just came in to the store yesterday - it's been out for a few years. It's actually a really colourful book - it just so happens that my favourite images are black and white ones. The whole blog is looking a bit black and white. I must be feeling monochromatic. The next book I want to write about is all black and white. Hmmm. Sharlene aged 6 is going to be my only splash of colour. Fairly fitting as she is a splash of colour on a regular basis.
The Japan Style book is printed on the most wonderful quality paper. It's thick and heavy. The lay-out of the book is pretty great too, the publishers aren't afraid of leaving space and blank pages which adds to the beauty and starkness of some of the images.
