Yay, it’s publication day! Our first book, The Super Cute Book of Kawaii, is now in shops (in the UK) and online (everywhere!). Here’s all the buying links, including signed copies and bookplates.
If you’re only just hearing about it, the book is filled with character profiles, DIY crafts and recipes, outfit inspiration from our favourite kawaii people, a shopping guide to Tokyo, how to make a cute and cosy home, journaling inspiration and more, all packed inside a squishy cover!
It’s all new content too, so you won’t have seen it here on the blog before. We’ve been sharing a few things on Instagram recently if you’d like a look inside. The character section still makes me pinch myself as we got permission to include all our kawaii favourites; Pusheen, Rilakkuma, Sumikko Gurashi, Hello Kitty, Gudetama, Miffy, Molang and more.
I started working on this book 2 years ago so it’s very exciting to finally see it out in the world. If you’ve bought a copy, THANK YOU, and do share a photo with us on social media and/or tell us your favourite bits. For those of you low on cash, look out for a giveaway later today.
Lastly, while my name is the only one on the cover, this book wouldn’t exist without a lot of other people. Most important is the book designer, Sophie of Maru Studio, who made everything look so cute and colourful, and my editor Laura Higginson, who turned all this into reality – and came up with the squishy cover!
As well as the characters, lots of our favourite kawaii people stepped in to share their tips and creativity – there are too many to mention but we’ll be highlighting them more soon. The SCK writers were a huge help writing extra posts while I was busy with the book, and my family and friends had to listen to me talk about book stuff for all the months it was a secret. Thank you all so much.
