Ao Akua arrived this afternoon! – Book is the cutest thing ever. LOL’ Tinier than I expected really~~

Juri Ueno - Ao Akua - Cover

Though, I don’t love this PB as much as I love A Piacere, mainly because I was a tad bit disappointed on the photographs. Don’t get me wrong, there are a few great shots, but a lot of snap shots too~~ What I love about this one? I like the concept, and the fact that there’s a companion DVD.

More after the break.

Probably left-over paint from Juri’s oil painting. Like totally.

Juri truly shows a lot of artistic skills in this project, including painting on canvas, photography, some cooking (from the dvd), crayon doodling and even scuba-dives.

Now, if only there was some more English inside other than the index and the scattered English words. xD And don’t forget the DVD… needs English. Ha!
