The comment in the left corner is in French and says artist's proof copy...
Can you send the book's reference or ISBN? Thanks!
Thank you for the kind comments.Gould, I'll see what I can come up with. I didn't see an ISBN but I'll scan the cover or colophon for you (should have done that, but I was feeling lazy last night).
Thanks ! Will send you a picture of his playcards in exchang ;-)Still wonder why there's some pencil writing in French ...
Will, these are exquisite. I am glad you have such good friends!
Laura, I gave him a list and a rough dollar amount and he came back with a huge haul for me, I was quite ecstatic. Curiously, he said everyone gave him puzzled looks when he asked for books by Tajima. No one seemed to know him or stock his work. (Or his brother's work.)
How wonderful. I discovered his work through the kodomo no kuni magazine for children - just so beautiful. Thanks for showing these.
Wow these are wonderful! thank you as always.
What very elegant and beautiful illustrations
Great post, amazing art. Thank you!
Love these pictures. Can't stop looking at them.
Woah, something to save up for ... in my dreams.
More delights. Thank you, mister.

oh, oh, oh. Sometimes it takes me a little while to get 'jiggy' with it! These are stunning. So pleased I back tracked through the archives.
