Kokeshi dolls are cute wooden Japanese dolls that are popping up everywhere from happy wallpaper…
to an LP record jacket.
From a sweet birthday cake…
to hip flip-flops.
Even disguising a bento box!
Gwen Stefani collaborated with Momiji to create a special set of dolls to raise money for the victims of the tsunami in Japan.
And now… books! Chronicle’s Kokeshi world was created by French illustrator Annelore Parot. Kimonos is a fully illustrated picture book with cutouts and flaps to make exploring even more fun.
We also have a Kokeshi Journal…
and notecards to bring a little kawaii (Japanese for “super-cute”) to your life.
Be the first one to wow your friends with Kokeshi cuteness! We are giving away a copy of Kimonos to one reader who leaves a comment here. Winner will be chosen randomly on October 17, 2011.
