The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art Presents "Meet Your Friends From Japan!"

Meet Your Friends from Japan!

August 20 – September 27, 2009

The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art located in Amherst, Massachusetts, has a collection of Japanese picture books donated by Japanese publishers, picture book art museums, illustrators, and friends of the museum.

In this exhibition, Meet Your Friends from Japan!, you are invited into the world of modern Japanese picture books that share similar graphic qualities or imaginative themes as those in Eric Carleā€™s works. Consequently, you may see Japanese culture in a new light as something that is very different and yet familiar to you. For more information click here.

    I’ve read “Where are You Going” several times to my daughter. It’d be great to see such an exhibit. I’m sure it’d be wonderful.

    I love the idea behind the exhibit. I wonder if it includes any works by Taro Gomi… His books were very popular with my daughter when she was younger. They are a joy to look at and a pleasure to read!
