While it’s true that many of us who live outside Japan love Japanese crafts and stuff, the Japanese themselves are very much in favor of zakka from overseas, particularly France!
Here are some absorbing pages:
French zakka wouldn’t be complete without Alain Gree, an author and illustrator of detective novels and numerous well-loved vintage children’s books (many of which are out-of-print). It was after seeing this that I ordered online a set of postcards with his original illustrations which I’ll show you the next time.
Akemi also shares a few easy craft ideas for metro/museum tickets, paper-box packages and etc.
This book seems to be beautiful !

I’ve noticed that the Japanese love all things French. Do you know Lollipops? It is always full of young people, many of them from Japan. There are several shops in Paris and more around the world. My daughter in law happens to be the designer! website: http://www.lollipops.fr
