The Beijing Olympics will come soon, this is "Todas as logos de Olimpiadas, desde 1896". They are all good designs. By the way, the location of the next Olympics will be decided soon, right? Tokyo??
Do you remember the old 80s game Spelunker? He appears as the bottle caps. Cute!
This is an interesting article for me. Usually Japanese books are written in vertical lines, but young people are used to horizontal writing because of cell phones and the Internet. Some publishers started to sell books written horizontally. I love to read books and I love the Internet. But I would love to read regular books.
Talking about books, some paperbacks of literary masterpieces were published with cover designs by manga comic artists and they made good sales."No Longer Human" of Osamu Dazai has cover work of Ken Obata (Death Note), and Ken Obata drew a cover for "Kokoro" of Natsume Soseki too. I am not sure they are much for those books, to be honest, I don't like them, but they have a good reputation usually. But the cover of "The dancing girl of Izu" by Nobel Prize winner Yasunari Kawabata is said to be "too much". Here it is , it's a work of Hirohiko Araki (his photo) of Jojo's bizarre adventure. Odoriko has a JoJo's posing....orz
