Hon no Hon

I just got a belated Mother’s Day present last week from my Mom.  Hon no Hon or Book of Imaginary Books by Junzo Terada. I’ve been wanting it since I spotted it on Last Gasp so my Mom ordered it for me and it was backordered and just came in. So worth the wait, it is the most beautiful book. I look through it everyday. The colors are addictive.

Jennifer in Japan clarifed that it is actually a book of book covers for imaginary books. So I guess there really is no The Octopus and the Drum. too bad!

    Hi!
    It’s one of my favourite Japanes books too…The titles are in French, but you can see it’s translated from Japanese…Most of the time that “lost in translation” touch gives an extra cuteness to the titles. Adorable!
    I’m pleased you liked it. :)
