Book Review: pepita 井上雄彦 meets ガウディ

English edition of this book is available.

pepita 井上雄彦 meets ガウディ - 01

pepita is an interesting project of 井上雄彦 (Inoue Takehiko) where he traveled to Spain to explore the works of Spanish Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi.

It's a collection of sketches he drew on location, some impressions of the people from the past, and other assorted sketches he overlay onto the photos taken. There's a lot on Spanish architecture and much on the history but everything is written in Japanese.

This book is actually a limited edition. A 108-page hardcover that comes with a DVD (region code 2) and several calendar cards feature the art in the book.

There's a pepita facebook page that you can also check out.
