Designer's Tokyo

Designer's Tokyo: An original, idiosyncratic and unique look at one of the worlds most extrodinary cities.
This is an illustrated book project that I am currently working on. To date one hundred subjects and pages are completed and the synopsis has been submitted to several publishers.
The book is a creative guide and travelogue to Tokyo and the surrounding region. It explores unusual and original themes including: Architecture as showcase, 20th Century Samurais, Hanami, Cartoon characters, Automatic distributors, Street graphics, Plastic food, Bicycle parking tickets, Harujuku girls and Virtual games... etc.
Material is drawn from my 5 000 Japan photographs and my experiences and impressions from two years of living in and exploring the city with open eyes and most importantly an open mind.
