kobayashi toshiya and miyazawa kenji

i recently bought a whole bunch of books by miyazawa kenji in a special edition illustrated by kobayashi toshiya who i think might be this person. some of the stories are very classic children's stories of the kind that everyone reads in school but that are still good for grown ups. even with my electronic dictionary i can hardly read them at all, i bought them just because they were such lovely illustrations and so beautifully printed. there's something about the page layout that's just so bloody good. here's some images from one called yamanashi, more to follow.
