Over the Rainbow

Yoshitomo Nara and his apprentice/student, Hiroshi Sugito, are releasing a brand new book called Over the Rainbow. The book document's Sugito and Nara's three-month residency in Vienna.
It is 112 pages long, and I think it also features some lithographs that have all been touched up with crayons by the authors. Sugito has a more delecate style (to my untrained eye), and Nara is just a god. I think the book looks interesting, and I am looking forward to its publication.
