this is a really beautiful book i found last time i was in tokyo. photos of people with photos of their lunch. makes me want to run away to find a life in the japanese countryside where there's enough time and presence of mind to pack a beautiful lunch like this. the text seems to be about the people in the photos. wish i knew enough kanji to actually read in japanese; it'd open up such a big world of things to read.
you can buy it here or here.
i loved this line that nobuko wrote on our collaborative blog (we write each other letters in each other's languages):
..i've almost forgottn to read foreign novels for these ten years.
you wouldn't catch an australian forgetting to read foreign novels for ten years.
