[Japanese Mythology Picture Book for Children]. - Keiichi Tanaami

£95.00

TANAAMI, Keiichi.
[Japanese Mythology Picture Book for Children]. 
8vo. In paper covered illustrated boards. Japanese text. [Np]: Kokudo Sha, 1968.
A somewhat fragile copy with sections separating from spine at three spreads. Colours are still clear and bright.

A rare and sadly overlooked children's picture book by Japanese pop artist Keiichi Tanaami. Colourful panoramic paintings tell a popular story in Japanese mythology in which the God Susanoo battles with a huge snake with eight heads and eight tails. The vivid pictures show Susanoo helped along on his quest by a crew of friendly foxes, rabbits and owls. Children's author Yasuo Maekawa contributes the text in Japanese.
