Yawara!

This exhibition will present just some of the manga cover artworks that I've found to be impressive. It should by no means be considered an all inclusive look at the various artistic styles employed as cover art. To bring together such a collection is beyond the scope of this presentation.

Walk into any Japanese bookstore and you'll find a dizzying array of colorful manga. These small paperback books that Westerners would dismiss as nothing more than comics would be better described as "graphic novels."

Cover of "Yawara!" (Vol. 6)
Naoki Urasawa's manga about a young woman named Yawara who pursues a career in Judo.
