A Swiss and Japanese Friendship

BY MIGUEL PEREZ-LA PLANTE
@ VOL 121 ON JAN 28, 2015

"It's hard to summarise the more than 240 events that took place celebrating the 150 years of friendship between Switzerland and Japan...but let's start right here at PechaKucha."

In A Swiss and Japanese Friendship from Tokyo Vol. 121, Head of Culture and Public Affairs at the Embassy of Switzerland in Tokyo, Miguel Perez-La Plante speaks on the numerous events that were put together to celebrate Switzerland and Japan's shared traditions in art, design, architecture, literature, music, theatre, food as well as humanitarianism.

This presentation originally was featured to commemorate the series of cultural events mentioned within that took place earlier in 2015. PechaKucha spotlights it again for our second collaboration with the Swiss Embassy later this week, together bringing a special instalment of PKN to Tokyo Art Book Fair 2015, Powered by PechaKucha.

This was "Presentation of the Day" on Friday, September 18th, 2015.

Do you judge a book by its cover? It's okay, most everyone does. That's why publishers put so much into book cover design. As both a publisher and an author, Greg Lilly tries to find that perfect balance between just enough to interest you, and too much clutter to pick it up.
