    Hello there, it’s been more than a year since the last comment so I’m not sure anyone is reading this, but I wanted to inform anybody who’s interested in Junko’s art that her new photo book has just hit the shelves of bookstores in Japan on Dec 6. The book itself is beautiful. It is binded by colourful threads, a very special paper and ink is used. It’s in a book case with gold plated title. Inside the book are 115 photos(much larger than her previous book) of her works and at the end there are notes on each work about the events and memories that inspired that work or what she was thinking when she created it. They are all written in Japanese but there are English translations on all of them so you can enjoy her unique view as well. You can buy the books from http://www.cowbooks.jp/
