you're welcome :p
here is his myspace, where you can view a demo (video)
http://www.myspace.com/164795440

also it says on the site if you make something from the techniques, you could send it and they'll upload it there, but not sure where that page would be... but you could post it *here* if you like

He did a demo at my uni once, it was awesome. Couldn't remember his name though, so glad I found this.

Thanks so much Gius, these look really interesting. I will have a more detailed look & maybe try the techniques out if they are straightforward to follow.

Pattern magic Japanese-English?
I am happy to have both of Nakamichi's Pattern Magic books now. Totally fascinating!

To work with the books, knowledge of the Japanese language does not seem a must as the illustrations are excellent. It would be nice, however, to be able read one or the other description or instruction to get the most out of them. Therefore my question: Does anybody know if meanwhile there are translations available? Or do I have to go via OCR and babelfish?

A*

OCR stands for Optical Character Recognition, a software that usually comes with your scanner or is available as free- or shareware ... Other than with such a software, I don't see a chance to use babelfish

I don't understand your other question concerning furigana, gius.

i'm asking about furigana because i can't read a lot of the chinese characters (kanji) but i can read the japanese alphabets.. and they use these alphabets in the furigana (above the kanji) so you can read the kanji :-)

do you have OCR? sounds like the perfect program.. seems high-tech. i've never even heard of it before. seems to be easiest doing it the OCR way. my chinese friend can read some japanese texts just by going with the chinese characters/kanji... it becomes pretty obvious even without the japanese alphabet in the sentences.
