Japanese author/illustrator Anno is best known for his travel books (Anno's Journey, Anno's Italy, Anno's Britain, and so on), but his creativity doesn't stop there. Employing a wide range of pop-ups and folded illustrations along with an exhaustive (yet fully comprehensible) text, Anno explains the workings of the sundial and provides usable examples for youngsters to play with. His first pop-up book and a first edition in Fine condition.
