Americas Group Book Selections


Takes readers back to an aspect of their childhood long forgotten in most English-speaking countries - the pleasure of filling in the lines with precision, the fun of choosing the colors to use, the decisions about whether a pen, pencil, marker, or crayon would be better to work with, the day dreaming about the people outlined in the picture, and lots more. All of this remains vitally important in Japan - where a museum has been established to understand and preserve the best examples of picture coloring.

AUTHOR   Masa Kaneko is the founder, curator, and principal researcher of the Nurie Museum - a museum in Tokyo wholly devoted to understanding the history, attraction, preservation and culture of coloring pictures. Kikuo Yamamoto was born in 1940 and graduated from the Department of Commercial Science of Chuo University. He is a management consultant.
