Florent Chavouet, a young graphic artist, spent six months exploring Tokyo while his girlfriend interned at a company there. Each day he would set forth, with a pouch full of colored pencils and a sketchpad, to visit different neighborhoods. This stunning book records the city that he got to know during his adventures, a gritty, vibrant place, full of ordinary people going about their daily lives. Realistically rendered city views or posters of pop stars contrast with cartoon sketches of iconic objects or droll vignettes, like a housewife walking her pet pig and a Godzilla statue in a local park.

With wit, a playful sense of humor, and the colored pencils of his kit, Florent Chavouet sets aside the question of urban ugliness or beauty and captures the Japanese essence of a great city.

Staff Pick:
One of people's favourite destinations at the moment is undoubedtly, Japan. So, if you're one of those who have visited the country or just simply love art sketches, you may like this. It has sketching of the many towns in Tokyo, Japan such as Ebisu, Shibuya, Omotesando Aoyama, Yoyogi Harajuku and many others. It has the maps which are sketched and coloured in. It has drawings and scibbles to explain what is in a dish or what certain signboards mean, or how the Japanese dress-up. An interesting book.
