Description

This is a book or magazine about a subject not included in our other categories. See the description below for details.

The author and illustrator of this charming book, Chikabo Kumada, lived to be 98 years old, and in interviews is quoted as saying he feels he "really bloomed" when he turned 70! If you love the natural world, you'll love this book--his detailed paintings of things you've seen a thousand times in your life like bees, moths, beetles and caterpillars, are beautiful, intense, and look as if they were painted from a bug's-eye view. In theory this is a children's book, but everyone will enjoy these fantastic illustrations! Hardcover with dust jacket. All text is in Japanese.
