This book documents the art residency project of ceramics artist Annie Wan in Tsunan, Japan, where she explored the local residents' relationship with food and how it shapes their perspective on life. The cover art features a visual representation of rice, a staple food in East Asian culture, as a metaphor for the concept of "itadakimasu" (gratitude before meals) and thankfulness for food.

Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread follows the journey of the project, including the exploration, interviews, ceramics works, illustrations, and a dining party with Tsunan residents. The book is designed to accommodate trilingual content in Japanese, English, and Traditional Chinese through carefully arranged typography. Overall, this book offers a thought-provoking look at the intersection of food, culture, and identity.
