While sharing everything and everything on earth

This is an experimental picture book with the theme of ``The way we see colors has their own individuality.''
In Japan, it is said that one in 20 men has a problem with color vision. Despite being so familiar, it has been considered taboo in the picture book publishing world to address this topic head-on. For Mr. Komagata, who has struggled with the way he sees colors differently from other people since he was in elementary school, color vision is now one of the characteristics of individuality hidden in society, and he wanted to write a picture book about it someday.
