Japanese artist Mitsumasa Anno is best known for his imaginatively illustrated travel books (Anno's Journey, Anno's Italy, Anno's U.S.A., and so on), but he has also created works for the very young child. Anno's Masks is a simple volume with two holes cut directly through the entire book (including both covers!) that serve as eyes for a variety of wonderful animal masks: lion, cat, monkey, tiger, and many more. In VG+ condition with minor wear at the exterior corners. A first edition.
