The Takeo Paper Show has been held annually since 1965, but the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake, which occurred during the preparation of the 46th edition, forced a reconsideration of the history and significance of the show. After two years of planning, and with art direction by Kenya Hara, the 47th edition focuses on the delicacy, resilience and important value of paper, with the intention to rethink and further broaden the possibilities for fine paper. In turn, this finely bound and richly illustrated volume presents the show’s contents: an array of paper types, paper objects and artworks, as well as highly creative applications for paper that push the boundaries of the medium.
