Neutral Colors 4: Work
‘Neutral Colors’, the independent Japanese magazine combining vibrant offset and Risograph printing with a saddle-stitched binding, presents an issue on “work”. The issue is a bit of an experiment for the publisher, to see if they can make a living (or work) just by making magazines. Its pages are filled with personal ideas, beliefs, and resolutions about the topic at hand. Most notably it includes a record of editor-in-chief Naonori Katoh's visit to Amsterdam, where he stopped by Idea Books and Roma Publications. In addition, there is a feature on the phenomenon of Japanese cold type printing, plus musings on proofreading, the challenges of cultivating “ant plants”, and more.
