In the early 90’s, Italian artist Igort moved to Japan to work in the manga industry. This beautiful book is a travelogue of that time, an illustrated memoir of his immersion in Japanese culture and of Japanese culture’s reaction to him. It works as both a history of manga (told in an engaging manner that doesn’t require any previous interest in the subject), and a cultural study of a country through an outsider’s eyes. With a mix of delicate lines and lush colours, Igort brings his experiences to life in a style which blends European and Japanese influences with deceptive ease. A cinch of a gift for anyone with an interest in Japan.
