Tetsunori Tawaraya’s Binoculars is a magnificent collection of creatures from another dimension, which display the jewel-like rendering of Tawaraya’s stipple technique.
The visions, and color mixture vary widely from his previous book Telescope, also published by Colour Code. Tawaraya has been lucky enough to watch an enigmatic outland through his mind’s binoculars. Let’s set off on an expedition and observe them all for vivid side effects.
