About

Hi all!


Thank you for watching this page.

My name is Yosuke Nakano, Japanese artist, painter and writer. 


I opened this project because I'd like to publish a book with YOUR love for the sun.


The draft title is “The sun in the world.”

※This is just an example. Real cover will be different. 


What's special?

Pictures, words, quotes, stories, myths, ,,everything in this book is about the sun. 

This book will be made by the people’s best shot of the sun and story of the sun around the world (193 countries).

Your favorite photo of the sun will be in this book.

Your story of the sun will be in this book. 

Your name will be in this book. (if you want)

You will make this book.

This book will be written by both Japanese and English.

I will write Japanese, and English will be translated by professional translator. 

It will be published in Japan at first, 

then broadened to USA, Europe, and all over the world near the future.



What for?

My first name “Yosuke (陽介)” is named after the sun, 

so I always love the sun in my life.


When I saw the sunset at Santorini Island in 2016, 

i met the people who take selfie and photos, talking to the sun, 

greeting “see you tomorrow!” to the sun, kissing each other, and gazing at the sun.

 They were all different personality from country, gender, religion, culture, family, and etc,

 but they were all same feeling toward to the sun.

At this moment, I realized that “we are all different, but we are all same.

Apple says “Think different,” 

and the sun says “Think same” is also important another side of the idea for us 

to shake hand with others and live together on the earth. 

The sun will give us the opportunity to reconfirm that 'we are all different, but we are all same.'



Why now?

We are anxious about our future because of conflict with nation, religion, thought,  revenue,

environmental matter, and more.

By correcting many stories of the sun around the world together, 

this book will tell you  “we are different, but we are same.

I believe this sentence will make small step forward to make world peace.

And this book will also tell you that the sun is the symbol of our world peace. 



Quotes in the book

"Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth."  -Buddha

"Truth is like the sun. You can shut it out for a time, but it ain't going away." -Elvis Presley. 

"It is an artist's business to create sunshine when the sun fails." -Romain Rolland

"I bring the sun wherever I go, buddy," -J.D. Salinger, Franny and Zooey

"Wherever you go, no matter what the wether, always bring your own sunshine." -Anthony J. D'Angelo

"If the Sun and Moon should ever doubt, they'd immediately go out."  -William Blake

"Art is like an energy of the sun. It is not given and taken. It is given and spread the power like the sunshine." -Taro Okamoto

“To correct a natural indifference, I was placed halfway between poverty and the sun. Poverty kept me from thinking all was well under the sun and in history; the sun taught me that history was not everything.” -Albert Camus

"I think laughter may be a form of courage. As humans we sometimes stand tall and look into the sun and laugh, and I think we are never more brave than when we do that."  -Linda Ellerbee

and more..



Additional column

Moreover, I was amazed by the power of people's creativity through the sun,

so many varieties of the expression of the sun will be also in the book.

You will be surprised how luxuriance people’s creation is.

Risks and challenges

This project depends on how many supports can join together, so I cannot 100% guarantee you that this book will be published for now. But I will publish this book anyway no matter how long it takes.
And I also cannot guarantee you that your photo and story will be in this book, because of lack of page, unsuitable contents, low-quality images, and etc.
But we will do our best to put many photos and stories as much as possible, because we want to deliver your love for the sun to the world through this book.
