Thanks for the interview. I love his work. I've been interested in this guy for a long time.
(I'm really interested in what those 'simplified drafts with fewer characters' look like though.)

I was confused by this, too, so I asked for some clarification. What they described is basically equivalent in English to taking a work of classic literature and dumbing it down into a version accessible to grade schoolers. Very helpful when trying to read something that's not in a language you're fully fluent in.

@Key

So he is not actually Japanese? The interview doesn't state where he is from.

I'm sure it's just a matter of time that he doesn't get a full translation.

They probably get a draft manuscript prior to editing corrections and he'll need to finalize a cover for it maybe in 1-2 months max. That's not enough time to fully translate a volume. They probably just pick passages about the character the cover is supposed to be of to translate fully and do a basic plot summary for the rest.

Who are some photographers you admire? Anyone whose work you think we should check out?

Rinko Kawaguchi. Her work greatly influenced me because it is very focused and delicate. It's a very special Japanese style of photography.


It's Rinko Kawauchi.
