    1. I purchased this book at the Ft. Worth art museum where the show was. It featured many up and coming Japanese female artists.

    2. Don't write it off as a coffee table book. There is some really good art in here, and much of the writing is interesting.

    3. I love this book. I never get tired of looking at it. All different art styles from Japan. It's got something for everybody. It ranges from abstract to real to fantasy. I love the texture of some of the pieces. I recommend this to anyone interested in art.
