48 Girls

48 Girls

by Chronicle Books and Yoshitomo Nara

Hardback Publication Date: 03/10/2017

RRP  $49.95 $39.30
A highly personal work appearing for the first time in English, 48 GIRLS collects forty-eight original paintings and drawings by Yoshitomo Nara, each paired with a poem by the artist. For Nara, each of the girls embodies a particular individuality in spirit or place: a dreamer, a traveler, a girl in a small room, in the forest, under the sea, walking, thinking, and more. The prose poems describe the girls, but also capture the artist's emotions throughout the creation of the book, crafting the artwork until the forty-eighth girl, and an additional culminating image. Published to mirror the production of the Japanese edition with a printed case, jacket, and obi band, this unique and accessible work will touch fans expand the popularity of Nara's heartfelt art and message.
