About Us

Hobby Japan Practical Manuals is an editorial department of the Japanese company Hobby Japan. We publish drawing manuals, art & craft books, artbooks, and more.


Although we are mainly known for our manga drawing manuals, in recent years we have been diversifying our lineup, also publishing translations of foreign titles such as "The Official Downton Abbey Cookbook".


Our English website showcases our original titles, together with inner samples and a description of the contents for anyone who cannot read Japanese.

Foreign publishers who are interested in publishing our books in other languages can reach us through the contact form on this site.
