Sandwiches! It's Tokyo Art Book Fair time again! I'm soooooo sad I had to cancel my booth because I was too busy to make a zine while I'm making my new book. SUCH. A. SHAME! I love this event so much!

BUT! I at least managed to escape my HS HQ to attend the opening party. If you're in Tokyo this weekend, I highly recommend checking it out.

Cutest standing bar ever. Stacks of blank books and stacks of sheets of paper as the bar counter.

It's the first time I haven't had a booth at the Tokyo Art Book Fair in five years.

You can see previous years here, here and here.

I should really start working on my zine for 2015 now!

Hello Sandwich


  1. I went to Tokyo Design Festa 2013 and it felt endless! This looks so much more cosier and friendly somehow :)

  2. I just wanted to say that I love your blog! the photos are so beautiful and I love the way everything is set out. Great work!

  3. Dear Ebony,

    Your blog is so addictive. I can't get enough of seeing those beautiful and nostalgic pictures of Tokyo here. You are so lucky to be able to live in Tokyo. And you are so talented too. From the pictures you share, I saw so many retro spots in Tokyo. Do most parts of Tokyo have retro and nostalgic ambiance?
    Anyway I feel so lucky myself to find this wonderful blog. Great Job, Ebony!
    I wish one day I could visit Tokyo and spend some time there.
