Wagashi - The graphics of Japanese confection






Last week I ordered a copy of Wagashi - The graphics of Japanese confection, a book that I have been eyeing for literally, years. I first came across in a bookstore in Shinsaibashi (Osaka) in 2006 and have regretted not buying it ever since.

Although it has been available on amazon.jp for sometime, I was unable to find it on English sites or in bookstores in Australia until a week ago.

It arrived in the post this afternoon, direct from fishpond, an online bookstore based in New Zealand. The cover is minimal, matte, smooth and clean, typically Japanese. I love Japanese design.
