This September, Abrams Image is thrilled to release Domo’s first book! Featuring original photography and haiku, Domo in the World (Abrams Image; September 2011; U.S. $12.95/Can. $14.95; ISBN: 978-0-8109-9815-5) shows our plush hero making his way through the world, whether flying a kite (or is the kite flying him?), wooing a pillow that looks suspiciously familiar, or eating anything in sight. An adorably-packaged board book that is loosely organized around seasonal holidays, this is a must-have gift book for all ages.
The funny, square-ish, brown creature began his life as a mascot for a Japanese TV network, but has since blown up into a beloved international phenomenon. His fuzzy, grinning mug has appeared everywhere from plush toys to figurines, T-shirts to key-chains, as well as on more than one million fansites and on his official Facebook page, where he has made over 230,000 friends. At last, here’s a witty and quirky love letter to the inimitable little guy who’s loved by fans around the globe.
