My favourite illustrated book is The Last Resort by Roberto Innocenti. I don’t find the story extraordinary but its atmosphere makes me feel so Hygge. This illustrator is brilliant, he really captured the essence of Hygge, I love his palette and his gentle warm light. I never tire of looking at these pages again and again, taking in all the little details.
I’m reading a beautiful book about Japan and this morning, I came across some incredible paintings in a castle from the Edo period (1600-1860),Kumamoto castle. Japanese art is my favourite.
