Aiko Fukawa is an illustrator who creates art used for advertisements, book covers, stationery, magazines, children's picture books and more. She has published an art book called Holiday Art Works and a coloring book entitled Four Seasons. We love her playful illustrations and can see why they would be the perfect choice for children's picture books. Her Instagram bio reads "ILLUSTRATOR. I LOVE CAT" and her love of cats is clearly evident in many of her fun works. These note pads, made with Mino washi paper and designed in collaboration with Aiko Fukawa, feature her fun and playful illustrations, which often include personified animals engaging in human activities.
- Material: Mino washi paper
- Dimensions: 6.6 in (16.7 cm) x 3.1 in (8 cm)
- Each pad has 20 sheets total (4 designs x 5 each)
Cozyca was started in 2013 by the well-established stationery company, Hyogensha, which had been founded in 1948. Cozyca was launched to promote the works of independent artists and inspire writers by making available beautiful stationery that depicts the view from different artists' worlds. Cozyca also has a store in Kyoto called Hiraeth that displays all the artist collaboration stationery designs they produce as well as exhibits different artists' works in their gallery on the top floor. We would love to visit their adorable shop and gallery one day!
