「マサカヤ亭奇譚」原画展 1






Last week I visited my professor Sumitto Mochiduki’s drawing exhibition of his novel “Masakayatei Kitan”. Now I can not see him because he pasted away four years ago, but I can touch his works and remember his words clearly through it.

It’s something strange to say “drawing exhibition of his novel”, but if you read this book you may realize what I say. These drawings are not just only “illustration” of the novel. Those are more like one part of world of the novel. Therefore I have to say “drawing exhibition of his novel”. Those integral images by novelist himself let me remember Michael End’s “Momo” and Saint-Exupery’s “Le Petit Prince”. I feel them kind of same molecular bond.

His wife told me “There is hidden gold print on the book. It’s a wish to make a book as Obje” then I opened cover. This is a book beautiful. The world inside a obje. Once Michael Ende said “People who invented Paperback must go to the Hell”. I surely think that it’s good this piece is read widely. But at the same time I think this should not be paperback. Sumitto also made CG series “Dishes which eaten with eye”. I think this novel might be called “Story which read with body”
