    Pieces of Nature

    book / editorial


    I art directed the binding/text design of a book called “Pieces of Nature”, published in November, 2011 by Keihanshin Lmagazine Co., Ltd.
    “Pieces of nature” is a collection of short essays, in 63 chapters.
    The book proceeds with a conversation between the flower arrangement artist Atsunobu Katagiri and pieces of nature (such as small flowers) which he found in his daily life. This book has an elegant feel which could be referred to as a “Plants’ questions and answers” and “Plants’ Manyoshu tanka(a famous 8th century Japanese poetry) collection”.
    I tried to create a universal timeless design which would last for the next 10 to 20 years.
