Translator's blog

From the translator’s journal ~ My Treasure ~

Each time I take the hand-made picture book in my hands, I wonder how it was made.
It is beautifully made with all the pictures on the left and the text on the right.
I also wonder on how it is written horizontally, while the book itself (Foal series in Japanese)
is written vertically… Was it made so instantly by some special computer`s technology, or
rather by the hard work of manual transcription?
I am so incredibly grateful for the artwork and energy put into this picture-book.
I can feel LOVE from the person who made it.
It is truly my special treasure! (November 27, 2020)
