Real Size by Katsuya Terada Book

Regular price $ 49.95

Book Dimensions – 7 x 12 inches and 1 inch thick - Hardcover ( codex binding ), 202 pages - Full Color, in Japanese ( book contains mostly images )

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.
