Tokyo Look Book


If you tend to follow the links for PauseTalk participants when I post them, then you may have clicked on Philomena Keet’s name last month, and already know about her TOKYO LOOK BOOK. A new release from Kodansha International, it’s an image-heavy look at Tokyo fashion, with great photography throughout. THE JAPAN TIMES recently covered the book — reviewed by Donald Richie no less — and it should give you a good idea of why you’ll want to pick this up (here it is on Amazon, Amazon Japan, and the Kodansha International site).

A launch party will be held this Friday (September 21) at Cafe Pause, from 19:00 to 21:00, so drop by to meet the writer and the photographer (Yuri Manabe). Images from the book will be projected during the evening, and I’m sure copies of the book will be available for sale as well.
