This beautiful book feels like an extra special object. “Codex Binding” allows for the book to be spread fully open to fully enjoy the spreads. 3 pages fold out to reveal stunning, larger images.
The book is wrapped in a glossy cover but take that off and discover beautifully intricate and detailed marker drawings reproduced onto the thick chip board cover.
Towards the back of the book, find a beautifully written excerpt by Terada musing over his need to draw and his frustrations with this addiction. Without spoiling too much, the translation is poetic and profound.
Sketch by Katsuya Terada
Soft cover, 512 pages.
A GIANT 512-page collection of Katsuya Terada’s RAKUGAKI sketches and illustrations.
The one and only legendary illustrator Katsuya Terada, a.k.a. RAKUGAKING (The Sketch King), well known as a pioneer who is always seeking new ideas and motifs for his drawings, has finally revealed his RAKUGAKI sketches and illustrations, long kept only in his sketch book.
Although most illustrations in this collection have appeared in Terada’s previous international exhibitions (e.g., Giant Robot in Los Angeles), never before has any book collected so many of his RAKUGAKI. This is the best and most comprehensive collection of Katsuya Terada’s pencil sketches, making it a must-have book for both his hardcore fans and also to illustrators in general.
