Edited by Kiyonori Muroga, former Editor-in-Chief of IDEA Magazine, this deceptively heavy volume chronicles the life-work of Noritake.

Spanning self-initiated projects to editorial design, advertising work, apparel design, and product design, there is a lot to love about the heartfelt illustration of Noritake.

Faithfully translated by Duncan Bortherton and Renna Okubo, this four-color volume represents high-craft Japanese illustration today.

A suitable addition to your favorite aesthete’s library!
