Dog Paper Clips by Midori

As usual I was stumped again this year shopping for a family member who loves dogs, but as I was strolling through Books Kinokuniya which is a Japanese book store here in New York I came across some great goodies for canine fanboys and fangurls of all ages. Shown above is are some playful paper clips which are by Midori who has a wide line of interesting stationery products.

Below is an amazing little gift book that I discovered which was packed with dog photos and Japanese brush typography. The name of the book is いぬだもの (単行本) which translates to “Dog’s Book” and is available at Amazon Japan. There’s also a second book in the series which is titled いぬだもの 2 (2) (単行本) which translates to “Dog to be 2” and can also be found at Amazon Japan:

This is the cover for “Dog to be 2”:

And this is a cute illustration from the back of the book — when ever you look at Japanese publication design they tend to always get the little details just right:
