Pikunikku was published in September 2017 by a Czech publishing house Labyrint (Raketa label). It is an illustrated book about Japan, designed for both children and adults. It is a collection of memories and curiosities collected by Monika Baudisova, a graphic designer and a student of japanese.
The book is divided into four themes — Everyday Life, Pop-culture, At Home and Tradition & Folklore. It is focused mainly on the illustration, accompanied by brief explanatory texts.

During Monika’s stay in Japan with a local family, she drew dozens of sketchbooks with illustrations of all the things she learned, saw and ate. After her return, pinkpill design gathered all that material and came up with Pikunikku. The result is funny and surprising, and it shows different aspects of Japanese culture, gastronomy and everyday life.
