Furari è un’espressione giapponese che sta per “vagare senza meta”, “seguire il vento”: e il piacere del camminare, di opporsi alla furiosa corsa del mondo per concentrarsi sulla bellezza delle piccole cose, è il tema di quest’ultima opera, contemplativa e malinconica, di Jirō Taniguchi.
Il protagonista – ispirato al celebre cartografo Tadataka Inō, che tra il XVIII e il XI

Jiro Taniguchi--the master of the magical mundane.

This is a beautiful collection about a cartographer in the Edo period of Japan.
He's retired and wants to create a map of his town, which he achieves by
walking through the roads and counting his steps in some ancient metric.

Yep, that's the story, but it doesn't matter. What matters are the experiences of the cartographer and his surroundings--you'll witness the festivals, the wale hunting, the fashion and food and other cultural events of the E

Jirō Taniguchi nous avait déjà introduit à ses récits déambulatoires. Cette fois, avec une maîtrise sans pareil du récit et du dessin, il nous entraine dans la pittoresque Édo, la Tokyo du XIXe siècle. Ce manga seinen n'offre pas de véritable récit mais plutôt quinze petites tranches (de dix à seize pages chacune) dans la vie de ce géomètre retraité.

Cette thématique de la déambulation, si chère à Taniguchi, pourrait sembler redondante et répétitive à la longue, mais pourtant chaque ouvrage m'ap

Mi chiedo se non sia finalmente arrivato il momento in cui e' necessario fermarsi per osservare bene cio' che ci circonda, camminare e' il movimento piu' importante per l'essere umano. Siamo liberi di decidere il ritmo dei nostri passi, e di percepire tutto cio' che vediamo nella sua piu' intima verita'. (back cover)

Der Kartograph ist eine wunderschöne Wanderung durch das Edo im Jahr 1800 in 15 Geschichten. In liebevollen und detaillierten Bildern hält Taniguchi den Blick seines Protagonisten auf den Alltag in der Stadt fest. Dieser Kartograph basiert auf einer historischen Persönlichkeit, Ino Tadataka, der hier als überaus sympathischer, neugieriger Mann der Wissenschaft porträtiert ist. Sein vorurteilsfreies Interesse an der Umgebung, in die er sich manchmal zum Staunen seiner Frau verliert - wenn er z.B. ...more

Un racconto unico, estremamente poetico e riflessivo. Camminare, ancora camminare, diventare uccello, tartaruga, gatto, elefante, formica. Questo volume colma il proprio spirito di pace. Calma e tranquillità sono protagoniste e accompagnano il lettore in un viaggio onirico ricco di poesia e volontà d'animo.
Un fumetto eccezionale, coronato da disegni sopra ogni canzone di bellezza. 5 stelle, solo perché non ne esistono 6.

Zen total, si. Taniguchi é un poeta visual que nos descobre un Xapón milenario en comunión coa natureza....
Sanju Hans
Sehr einfühlsam gezeichnetes Comic, das anhand des wandernden Kartographen Japan zu Beginn des 19. Jahrhunderts darstellt. Oft bemerkt man die Vorlagen der zeitgenössischen Holzschnitte. Wenig Worte braucht es zu den Zeichnungen, um die Stimmung noch zu vertiefen.
Antonio De la rosa
You see someone with a simple life, a simple goal, an ordered and clean environment, the time he has... goes (slowly) into the satisfaction of his natural curiosity and the quenching of his thirst for beauty. This book was like a good shower for the spirit.

On pense retrouver "L'homme qui marche", mais la magie n'opère que de loin en loin désormais avec Taniguchi, qui ne nous surprend ni ne émerveille plus.. quelques beaux passages, mais...
