Art Book
Publisher: Ippodo Gallery

A beautifully printed art book features glass artist Laura de Santillana and 10th generation Kondaya, Obi sash maker, Genbey Yamaguchi. This book was published coinciding with the 2018 Exhibition celebrating the 280th anniversary of Kondaya craftsmanship.

 

The book is an art piece in itself. Made with the finest sourced washi paper and using high-resolution art images, it is almost as if you are looking at these pieces in person. Laura de Santillana's glass sculptures jump from the page and act like they weigh the space in front of you. The book features a multi-paneled fold-out page that exquisitely presents both Laura's tablet series and Kondaya's detailed silk textiles.
