Maltzahn, Katrin von: Japan Guide
Text and drawings capture a trip to Japan and the following visits to the country via my imagination. The observations are subjective. They are compared and linked to the familiar, marveled at, admired, critically observed, explored.
The impetus for this book came from failed attempts to learn the Japanese language in Germany. This led to the awareness of how closely language skills are linked to experiences that go far beyond vocabulary. In retrospect, the journey and subsequent contemplations provided me with missing links. They form the basis for a new relationship.
