If you’ve got some holiday money to spend, here’s some super cute books coming out in 2019 from our favourite kawaii crafters, YouTubers and more. As well as getting a cute book in the mail, you’ll help publishers see what’s popular so they’ll think about commissioning more kawaii books.
The Super Cute Book of Kawaii
Of course, our own book is coming out this summer! The Super Cute Book of Kawaii is packed full of cute crafts, recipes, fashion, shopping, Japan and lots more to help make your life super cute. Out July – pre-order from Amazon UK / Book Depository
