In Miyazawa Kenji and His Illustrators, Helen Kilpatrick examines re-visionings of the literature of one of Japan's most celebrated authors, Miyazawa Kenji (1896-1933). The deeply Buddhist Kenji's imaginative dowa (children's tales) are among the most frequently illustrated in Japan today. Numerous internationally renowned artists such as Munakata Shiko, Kim Tschang-Yeul and Lee Ufan have represented his stories in an array of intriguing visual styles, reinvigorating them as picture books for modern audiences.
