gift wrap?: 

By Chizuko Judy Sugita de Queiroz.

George Takei best describes this book in the introduction when he says, “This collection of paintings by the gifted artist, Chizuko Judy Sugita de Quieroz, is her memoir in art of her girlhood years imprisoned in a camp called Poston in the desolation of a desert in Arizona. Despite the harshness of their condition, Chizuko and her family struggled to create beauty. She remembers her father carving wooden birds—he shaped fine jewelry from found stones with mail order lapidary tools. Her sister was a painter, capturing in art the magnificence of the desert sunsets.”

Through her own art, Chizuko has captured memories in words and vivid watercolors.

Paper: 35 pp.
