A compilation of photographs by photographer Hanayo, who reconstructed and edited a huge photo album that recorded the growth of her daughter, Tenko. Hanayo photographed Tenko from 0 to 15 years old and, Sawatari photographed from 15 to 18 years old. This makes this photobook a homage to Tenko’s favourite book “Alice” by Sawatari. Embossed characters on the front cover are created from two types of typefaces inspired by Hanayo and Sawatari, and made them into one title character.
