Lil Sonny Sky's book of the week...

A while ago I posted about a book which I'd found at Loobylu about the Japanese painter  Takehisa Yumeji

I find the book soooo inspiring and interesting, So after a little research I ended up at Pomadour's Craft Cafe
This Etsy shop sells Japanese craft books and other craft supplies, (based in beautiful Niigata
and there I found this book,

Kids Paradise Book - Japanese Art Book.

















Ohhhhh I wish I could read Japanese 
all those beautiful letters just blend into the visual beauty of the book, but I'd love to be able to read them,
( I haven't grasped the English language fully yet and after my french attempts in Marrakech there's just no hope for me on the Japanese front!!) 
The swimming children in the pic above is just beautiful.

The book showcases other Artists too and has some lovely family photos in.
It's my main reference book at the min, and if you're interested in getting your hands a copy you can here at  Pomadour's Craft Cafe.
