It was not especially easy for me to find this book, here in the US... but I was determined. And so very excited when it finally showed up on my doorstep. The diary of a small, independent Japanese furniture designer. So beautifully conceived and shot. I knew when I first saw it mentioned that I had to own this book. In the end, I found it on the website of this bookstore, which we had visited in San Francisco. "Lost" fans, please try not to get too freaked-out by the polar bear references. These guys are just fond of polar bears, OK?
