Shigeru Miwa: Only One Me

Shigeru Miwa’s ‘Only One Me’ is a children’s book that’s illustrated beautifully and minimally with the poems of Shuntaro Tanikawa. Portraying melancholic duo-tones, the story revolves around a little boy’s observation on Alzheimer’s disease. Not much is known about the illustrator but Shuntaro is one of Japan’s most well-known poets that wrote the original lyrics to ‘Astro Boy’.
