Library Expansion

Somehow, every time I have a spare moment when I am traveling for work, I manage to drift into a Japanese Bookstore in search of books. I already have a dreadful issue with regards to collecting books (mostly cookbooks in my case) but then I stumbled into the world of Japanese Craft books. The new additions?

Food Wrappin' - ISBN: 4388058114

This book is loaded with beautiful photos - of food and how to creatively wrap it! What better than lovely food and lovely wrapping combined? :D

Next up, we have:

Amigurumi Collection Volume 2 - ISBN: 4388058114

This books completes my series of three :D. How shameful. I don't even know how to crochet yet. I better get started...especially since the last book to join the library (this time) is another crochet book!


Title Unknown - it's the Cat book that inspired Matcha!
ISBN: 4391130122

I love that book. Not only is it a pattern book, but it shows all colors of cats up to all kinds of mischief!

Shameless, just shameless...and that foodie book looks incredible! I expect all food parcels from you to be creatively wrapped now. No exceptions. :) Great finds my dear!

Those are just beautiful looking. I have GOT to find a Japanese bookstore somewhere.

I have cookbook collection problem, too! My main obsession is BAKING.

I have not begun collecting Japanese craft books YET. I think that I am going to have to make a trip to the Kinokuniya Book Store soon and try to look for that Cat Book. Maybe I can give them the ISBN number for them to look it up.
