Junko Hayashi. A book is made to be opened, watched, read and touched. Otherwise, it is no different than a pad of paper for photocopying. Thus Mo and Junko agreed on this detail. They produced a book that aims to be… touched. Course, it may be damaged. But this is the fate of a book. « When I say I’ make artists’ books, that sounds intellectual and cool. And then I feel embarrassed. I rather make poetry with book as a medium is maybe closer to the reality. My work is personal and candid. I don’t consider me as an artist. «
Tandem Editions. The works published by Tandem are foremost bibliophile creations where any choice of text and image, technique or material will contribute to exalt, through the art object touch and palpable what the book, the work of the spirit and skill of hand.
Broleskine turns books into notebooks. Realization of unique pieces of different styles, in a spirit of recovery and reworking material.
