Mishima

It's 40 years ago today that author Yukio Mishima killed himself. This month's Foreign Correspondent's Club of Japan magazine has my cover design for the memory of Mishima. The text cuts Mishima's neck to recall his decapitation by his seconds at his seppuku. Mishima was one of several artists – authors, film directors, painters – who added to my first attraction to Japan. Henry Scott Stokes' article for the magazine is here.
