Japan is a place of special fascination for the acclaimed international comics creator Igort, who has visited and lived there more than 20 times, and worked in the country's manga industry for more than a decade. In this masterful new book--part graphic memoir, part cultural meditation--Igort vividly recounts his personal experiences in Japan, creating comics amid the activities of everyday life, and finding inspiration everywhere: in nature, history, custom, art, and encounters with creators including animation visionary Hayao Miyazaki. With beautifully illustrated reflections on subjects from printmaking to Zen Buddhism, imperial history to the samurai code, Japanese film, literature, and manga, this is a richly rewarding book for anyone interested in Japan or comic arts practiced at the highest level.… (més)

Nippon mon amour, sul filo della memoria. Avvolgente. ( )

Japanese Notebooks is a graphic memoir by Igort, an Italian comics creator, who has traveled to Japan twenty times, lived there for a time and worked in its manga industry for ten years. It's a testament to his life long love affair with Japan. Igort shows how he learned to live and work in Japan, found inspiration from the cultural activities that he participated in, as well as how the comics industry operates there.

This is a beautifully illustrated book. Most of the drawings have been done in color and show the author immersing himself in Japanese culture and life. When he arrives in Tokyo he must adjust to living in the tiny 150 square foot apartment that he was given to live in. He then has a three and a half hour job interview. Later he realizes that in Japan the interviewee should be the first person to stand up, signaling the end of the interview. In the west, its the opposite. The Japanese person interviewing him thought that he was trying to negotiate a larger salary by not ending the interview. In his free time Igort visited Buddhist temples, tea shops, gardens, a sumo wrestling training place and book stores. He discussed with this Japanese co-workers the samurai code, films, literature and manga, all subjects that he illustrates in the book.

The author writes so lovingly about Japan that it makes the reader want to jump on a plane and visit the country too. If that is not possible, there is this armchair traveler book called Japanese Notebooks. ( )

Too random and unstructured for me. There are interesting pages here and there throughout the book, but they often lack context or follow through. ( )

Bello, anche se forse un pelino troppo serio.

Mi è piaciuto molto, bella l'atmosfera. Visti i numerosi riferimenti mi piacerebbe rileggerlo per indagare sulle persone che cita. ( )
