I own my grandmother's copy of "Little Pictures of Japan", and my favorite story within its pages is the Tanabata story! Sometimes I'll also use the illustrations for reference when I draw too because the imagery is just gorgeous! A great family book!

This book has the most beautiful illustrations. Original copies used to be very expensive, but now are easier and cheaper to find because the entire book is available online. I bought one at a flea market for less than $10.
