junaida’s picture books “Michi,” “No,” and “Monster Garden” have attracted much attention for their mysterious worldview in which brightness and darkness coexist in a vivid color palette of finely drawn figures and backgrounds in an enigmatic world reminiscent of Europe. This is the first book to be published in conjunction with his first large-scale solo exhibition “IMAGINARIUM”.
It contains works selected from picture books, art books, book covers, advertisements, and single-page illustrations, as well as “IMAGINARIUM,” a series of three paintings newly drawn for the exhibition.
The book is designed by Cozfish, who also designed “No” and “Monster Garden”.
