I hadn't heard about Yasunari Kawabata (1899-1972) before when I first saw a title of one of his novels in a magazine. It was called "The Land of Snow". I knew I should get one of his books, juts any of them. And I was right. It's like gazing the full moon while taking a bath in cool water... Well, my words aren't enough to describe it. Read yourself.
The card in the picture below presents a work by Ari Pelkonen, the Young Artist of the Year in Finland. Saw his exhibition last Sunday. He is so posh and so thorough in what he does.
