The long-awaited first art book from Katsumi Asano, who continues to fascinate viewers with an aesthetic and fantastic world view, such as the illustrations of "Poetry and Fairy Tales"!


The clear beauty emits a sharp light and hits the eye directly.

Katsumi Asano's work is characterized by the absence of morbid elements reminiscent of fin-de-siècle painting.

Even her works with motifs of night, madness, and death show that her sane mind crystallized with astonishing concentration and advanced technique, the core of which is her Aesthetics and philosophy.
