Busy Town - European Matchboxes






I probably say it about all of my books but this could really be one of my all time favorites...I mean it's in the top 10 with the other top 10 I LOVE and cherish.
It's a Japanese book with many many pages of European matchbox designs, the layout is lovely, clean and simple.
The publisher is Pie Books ISBN 978-4-89444-594-9
I got it from Kinokuniya Bookstore in New York.

This looks like it's going to have to join my small but growing collection of Japanese books. Thankfully I'm heading to Kinokuniya next week... the graphics make this a must have!

you are so lucky you find such lovely books at Kinokuniya. If I may ask when you find these books/magazines under what category and or sections of the book store do you look in??

I scour the whole store and find them in various places!
I always got to the children's section the craft section and the design/illustration areas primarily.
