Look at this beauty!
This is the front cover of The Only Gaijin in the Village and I’m in love. The illustration was done by Jessica Zoni Upton and the design by Abigail Salvesen. I cannot wait to see it adorning shelves around the world. I’ve also got to thank Alan Spence and Christopher Harding for their humbling quotes.
‘It’s a breath of fresh air to encounter this totally different Japan through Iain Maloney’s acute observations and unfailing humour. A deep knowledge of Japan, past and present, illuminates his account, but the people he meets are always front and centre, making this a warm, fun, engaging read. A joy all round.’ Christopher Harding, author of Japan Story: In Search of a Nation
