Cloé Fontaine is an architect whose final degree project, an examination of color schemes used in houses around the world, took her to all four corners of the globe. While studying in Japan, she compiled the watercolors that formed the basis of this book.

There are four chapters that contains art of objects from everyday life. These are architecture, customs, sceneries and modernity. Cloe Fontaine appears to like textures and patterns as that seems to be the recurring theme in her paintings. There are paintings on the different patterns of bamboo doors, garden designs, etc.
At the end, she takes on the popular manga culture by putting in some character through her watercolour sketches.
With sketchbooks, I prefer those with far shots and lots of architectural drawings. While this book has some, the focus is more on individual objects and elements.
