    Art picture book "Maki no Maki no Letter":

    Tomitaro Makino and his art picture book "Makinomaki's Letter", which conveys the joy of loving plants. The entire book is adorned with beautiful plant illustrations, intertwined with Dr. Tomitaro Makino's charming personality, smile, and memorable episodes from his life.

    Botanical illustrations in the book were created by Kanako Sasaki. While the drawings are as detailed as Dr. Tomitaro Makino's botanical drawings, they are also boldly abstracted to present a beautiful worldview. The concise text accompanying the drawings encapsulates Dr. Tomitaro Makino's life and personality succinctly.

    Dr. Tomitaro Makino:
    Dr. Tomitaro Makino, a self-taught botanist who left school voluntarily in the second grade, studied plants practically. He named over 1,500 species and varieties of plants, including new ones. Despite living in extreme poverty, he never abandoned his passion for plants, investing in expensive scientific books and filling his house with specimens. His life may appear reckless, but it embodies both integrity and bankruptcy, both as a scholar and as a human being. He is a remarkably captivating individual. The scholarly prowess of Dr. Tomitaro Makino is immeasurable.

    Message from the Publisher:
    The image of a human being that we aspire to see emerge in this new era is encapsulated in "Makino Makino's Letter".
