Manga Exhibition in British Museum


There is a fabulous new Manga exhibition at the British Museum in London. If you are interested in this Japanese form of art I would highly recommend it. I was lucky enough to be I invited to view this beautiful event and I was really excited about it. I visited Japan some years ago as my brother was living and working there, so I feel like I have a special connection to Japan. I just love the Japanese style and attention to details in everything they do. Everything is always made with great care and love. This short review is very much image rich, as I find it best brings the exhibition to life.
