Katherine Mansfield in Japanese

I've been very curious to see what Katherine Mansfield: The Storyteller would look like in Japanese and now I know.  I'm glad they've kept close to the original cover and the colour.  The book opens right to left and the text runs in columns up and down.


I can't read it, but it looks good.

Katherine Mansfield was fascinated by all things Japanese and had a Japanese doll that went everywhere with her.  And it seems the fascination was mutual - Katherine is very popular in Japan.
