Suika-An: A Miscellany Of Flowers - Fujio Kawagishi


Publisher Seigensha

ISBN 9784861526794


For Fujio Kawagishi it all starts with paper. Gazing upon a sheet, holding it this way and that to admire its beauty, he will soon be moved to complement it with some beauty of his own. It might be a sketch of a blossom that he adds, or a few lines in elegant lettering; he might trim and work the paper itself, to craft a hand-bound book, or a scroll, or an envelope, or a playing card. Whatever he does, it is always the desire to strike a harmony with the neauty of paper that guides him and gives birth to this singular world.
