Gurunpa’s Kindergarten is a beloved children’s book from over 50 years ago, first released in 1965. The longtime favorite book was written by Minami Nishiuchi and illustrated by Seiichi Horiuchi. The story stars Gurunpa the large elephant, who works at all kinds of places, including a shoe store, piano factory, automobile factory, and more.
Seiichi Horiuchi was active as an art director in a variety of fields, including magazine design and serialized travel journals. Gurunpa’s Kindergarten was one of the masterpieces of his work, and is the artwork featured on this Weeks book.
The artwork used on the front cover pictures Gurunpa carrying things he has made: a big biscuit, a plate and a shoe.
The cover has been constructed as a light, hardcover book with some give to it so it still bends. The base is off-white, and the book spine is filled with color.
Gurunpa always stands up to a challenge; if he fails, he gets back up again. What a great character to spend the next year with.
We’ve also made a pencil board with this design that would go well with the cover.
When you order this Hobonichi Techo Weeks, you’ll receive a clear, adhesive corner pocket you can stick anywhere you like.
