This 272-page, full color English/Japanese bilingual book explores the art direction, design, and art that has both surrounded and defined the career of Harajuku-centered musician and fashion model Kyary Pamyu Pamyu. Often considered the hyper-kawaii Japanese equivalent to Lady Gaga, this book looks at the work of KPP’s designer and art director Steve Nakamura over the course of the first five years of her career.
