Anno's Journey/ by Mitsumasa Anno
A lone rider's journey through a European town is feast for eyes and mind. The author of the book, Japanese by birth, has always been fascinated by Europe. As an adult he started traveling through Europe painting, observing and enjoying unfamiliar land. This experience resulted in Anno's Journey, written in 1978. The reader will enjoy following the lone rider through the town with its gorgeous architecture, daily life of a simple folk and rich noblesse, children playing their games, old timers sipping their beer on the corner of the tabern. On some pages the attentive reader will find familiar characters from Grimm's tales, Big Turnip story scene, Beethoven and Don Quixote. Very detailed monumental wordeless book that is worth your attention.
