First Bento Decoration Book Publication

2 Posted by - October 25, 2014 - Bento Art

Back to writing after several weeks of Lebaran holiday. We’re having a slow week, so I guess it’s time to do some other stuff that I haven’t done while I’m occupied with kyaraben catering.

I was approached by Kawan Pustaka publisher several months ago about working together to make a bento decoration book. It seemed like a dream come true since I always want to make my own bento book but really don’t want to do self-publishing. Making bento books is a good way to spread the knowledge to more people than doing workshops, since books can reach almost every cities and villages around Indonesia.

The publisher also give me full creative license about my book so I can decide the theme and the whole contents. After much thought and consideration, I decided to do all onigiri theme decoration since it’s the simplest and require less preparation, and the finished products are still good looking. My intended readers are active moms whose got kids from two to eight years old.

The books are available now in Gramedia bookstores and other book retailers. Please contact us if you want the book with author’s signature ;)
