About this product
- DescriptionExcerpt from A Japanese Artist in London This seems to me to be a book of unique interest. The irresistible humour and the force of Yoshio Marki's writing is well kwn to critics, for in reviewing his three large colour books, The Colour of London, The Colour of Paris, and The Colour of Rome, most of them have given as much space to the single chapter contributed by the artist as they have to the entire letterpress of the book. Nor is this surprising, for Mr. Marki in his quaint English has sometimes an arrestiveness almost equal to Thomas Carlyle's. There is real style in it. He has evolved a grammar of his own which is strikingly effective. In his new volume, A Japanese Artist in London, he has a subject eminently suited to exhibit the humour and pathos and forcefulness of his style.
