The lovely characters by Yunoki make you feel the joy of each day. It is a daily calendar that fits naturally into your daily life.
As an interior decoration, place it in your favourite place, write the events of the day on the back of the pages, or use it as a diary.
【 Naoto Fukasawa】
Designer/ Director of the Japan Folk Art Museum, made this calendar with numbers drawn by Samiro Yunoki.
It is also a day-by-day calendar. Just looking at the numbers conveys warmth and smiles.
Samiro Yunoki has drawn letters with the words "Joy today, joy for life."
The loveliness coming from these numbers brings us joy every day.
Yunoki will be 100 years old in October 2022. His katazome patterns and children's books have somehow come to be known as art.
He has always been able to draw lines and shapes that only he can draw. As he gets older, his work seems to become more vibrant.
Artists paint what only they can paint. He just doesn't have such big ideas.
I think he doesn't practice, he doesn't draft, he just simply draws.
