Minerals and natural history illustrations
How much impact does a little emotion have on our lives? We live according to such impressions without knowing it.

-Vincent Van Gogh-

When I was young, my dad took me to a small mineral store in the basement of a bookstore. There were fossils of fish and ammonites, and minerals of beautiful colors and shapes that could not be seen in the world. I kept looking at it without getting tired of it.

I am still chasing the image of the world seen through the small stone grains at that time.

There are also picture books and books on the natural sciences.

Who melts the ice?

Who will grow a four-leaf clover in June?

Who will take down the night book?

Who lights the moon?

-Leo Lionni "Frederick"
