Sumimasen By Isabelle Boinot
After falling in love with Isabelle Boinot's Japan blogs I just had to order a copy of her Japan sketchbook journal 'Sumimasen'. Sumimasen includes illustrated sketches, photographs & souvenirs from her trip to Japan. Ironically Isabelle was on another trip to Japan when I contacted her about purchasing this book, she was kind enough to send me a copy from my fave travel destination.
The inner cover of Sumimasen is covered with stickers from her Japan travels
Restaurant sketches from Okariba, Kyoto
Lovely Japan handkerchiefs
Isabelle fills pages with kawaii Japan illustrations, paper souvenir cut-offs, maps, ticket stubs & stamps
Yummy Japan treats & trinkets
Stamps collected from Ikebukuro's Sunshine City in Tokyo
There is something interesting about seeing similar, but different consecutive photographs together on a page
Pretty Japan paper bags
Isabelle sent me a Japan 'Parco' postcard with a thank you message in my package!
