About the book:
This is the latest drawing collection by Yukari Miyagi. After the big earthquake and the nuclear accident on March 11, 2011 in Japan, the author, Yukari Miyagi, has struggled to draw: She was not sure and could not find a motive that she would work on a new work in this confused condition of Japan and herself, and what her work meant to the world. So she stopped drawing. A year later she tried to draw a line, just one line, she started there, to draw a line. She began to walk a little by little, very slowly, thinking along with everything she feels in her everyday life.

The drawing collection has over eighty pieces that the author has drawn everyday, one piece a day.
