I worked on a miniature collage for the cover of a lovely novel, Kazoku Theatre, by the award-winning very popular Japanese author, Mizuki Tsujimura. The book design by the super talented, Naoko Nakui. Before I stated to work, I had a chance to read the book (proof version). Each short stories & the characters were very very precious. I didn’t want to finish reading the book! The book will be available on October 22 at bookstores across the country in Japan.
