Weird and wonderful book bringing together texts by architect Kikou Mozuna, drawings by Tadanori Yokoo and imagery by architectural photographer Mitsumasa Fujitsuka. Tadanori Yokoo was deeply committed to the new age movement and this book presents his automatic drawings that reflect on shrines, deities, Buddhist temples and other sacred spaces in Japan. The innovative book design that frequently merges sketches, texts and photography is also the work of Tadanori Yokoo.
