"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.
Kako Fujita of SUN-AD has been chosen for the December 2017 issue.
The paper used is MINUTE GA from the T-EOS series.
The title of the work is “Ski slopes.”
The artist got the idea for the work when she noticed how a book placed face down resembles a ski slope.
Using transparent foil on MINUTE GA creates a unique feel, like snow
that has become hardened from being trodden on.
The idea for the work really came into focus when the artist noticed
the swoosh soundproduced when sliding her finger over this fine paper.
