Imaginatorium Shop, version 2

Welcome to the new Imaginatorium site at imaginatorium.com. There is no "total reorganisation", so you should be able to find things easily, and eventually any bookmarks to the old shop will be redirected to the right page. The new checkout is working, which means that in simple cases you will be able to complete a purchase in the normal way.

Covid-19: Shop status

There are still many problems in the postal system, varying hugely from one country to another. More details on the front page, and at the checkout there will be more specific information about the destination country (sorry: not implemented for all countries yet!).

1000: Snoopy comes to Japan (Peanuts)

Snoopy enjoys coloured dango, sweet sticky riceballs, while riding a rickshaw. This looks rather like Kyoto, except that Mount Fuji can be seen towering in the distance...

For fifty years Charles M Schulz (1922-2000) drew the Peanuts cartoon strip, featuring Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the rest of the gang, who have become some of the best-known characters all over the world.

I-ro-ha poem
© Shu Mizoguchi

1000: I-ro-ha poem (Shu)

The figure with a parasol, the cherry blossom, ducks on a stream, somehow a foreboding scene...

("I-ro-ha" is the beginning of the Japanese syllabary, rather like "A-B-C"; the original title is Iroha meguri.)

Born in Hiroshima in 1972, the artist developed his talent for original art while working as a graphic artist for a game company. He is now an independent creator of fantasy works.

Mizoguchi is his family name; he signs his work "Shu", the short form of his given name (Shuichi). On the box his name is given as "SHU Mizoguchi", somewhat confusingly, given the recent trend to writing the family name first capitalized.
