Idea Code 19337

Artist Akira Yamaguchi straddles an exceptional range of styles in his work, and is known for combining traditional Japanese styles with contemporary motifs. This collection brings together his acclaimed illustrations for ‘Shinran’, a novel by Hiroyuki Itsuki that was serialised in local Japanese newspapers over seven years from 2008. It includes the complete series of more than 1,000 illustrations, plus preliminary drawings, commentary by the artist, and unused versions. Often humorous, it is a powerful example of Itsuki’s prowess matched with Yamaguchi’s inventiveness, from delicate pen, ink, and pencil images, to sweeping classical-style panorama scenes, manga, and more.
