Tiger Tateishi was a master cartoonist and this book is proof of that– each page presents genius exlorations on the medium that will blow your mind with just simple black lines. I'm so excited this book was published because finding these comics is pretty much impossible now a days. Super recommended!

"Tiger Tateishi first began drawing cartoons in 1964, inspired by copies of MAD Magazine which occupation forces had left behind. Before moving to Milan in 1969, Tateishi regularly contributed to manga magazines. In Milan, while working for Ettore Sottsass at Olivetti, he began creating the stunning comic panel layout paintings posthumously collected in the book Moon Trax. Also around this time, as Fumiko Tateishi explains, Tiger "had a strong desire to make a real comic book, and spent almost five years working on the pictures for Tora No Maki [presented here as Cheat Sheets]. At first, Penguin Books in London were considering publishing it, and they had the originals for quite a while, but after a love call from Seigow Matsuoka at Kousakusha in Tokyo, the book was eventually brought out in Japan." Cheat Sheets presents these comics in a single volume for the first time outside of Japan. Welcome to the strange world of the hermit Arara Sennin."  –50 Watts
