Yuichi Yokoyama “ICELAND”

Special Prize


 

Yuichi Yokoyama  “ICELAND”

This is a book design for Yuichi Yokoyama’s “ICELAND” (Client: 888books).
 There is a Japanese version and Chinese version.
 I have two feelings: one that I want to be sensitive to beautiful characters; and the other that I want to believe that anything is good as long as it is readable. I always go back and forth between the two ambivalent feelings. Then, Yokoyama’s works always stimulate the latter feeling.
 As a result, the book design was devised.
