  • Feature in April 2018 issue of "BRAIN"

"Book Jacket: Senses" is a bi-monthly series made possible
through collaborations with creators using fine paper.
Each issue in this popular project includes a book jacket/cover
made with a different type of fine paper.

Isao Mitobe appears in the April 2018 issue.
The paper he uses is JAGARD GA from the T-EOS series.
The title of the work is "écriture." Once you put symbols on paper, you create an up and down,
and a front and back. Based on the idea that bookbinding is the imparting of meaning
through the writing of words, which are collections of symbols called characters,
Mitobe designed a book cover adorned simply with Japanese characters.
Note the contrast between the platinum white and the Japanese characters,
and how the embossing pattern is expressed in the foil stamping.
