Book Dimensions – 7 x 12 inches and 1 inch thick
Hardcover ( codex binding ), 202 pages
Full Color, in Japanese ( book contains mostly images )
This beautiful book feels like an extra special object. “Codex Binding” allows for the book to be spread fully open to fully enjoy the spreads. 3 pages fold out to reveal stunning, larger images.
The book is wrapped in a glossy cover but take that off and discover beautifully intricate and detailed marker drawings reproduced onto the thick chip board cover.
Towards the back of the book, find a beautifully written excerpt by Terada musing over his need to draw and his frustrations with this addiction. Without spoiling too much, the translation is poetic and profound.

Plants and Flowers Show - Amy Matsushita-Beal - "To Lie with Lent Lily" (B)
Risograph print. Piece is unframed.
Artwork measures 8 x 10 inches.
Note from the artist: Lent Lily is another term for wild daffodils. The latin name is Narcissus, possibly based on the Greek God of the same name who became enraptured in his own reflection- I did play with that idea with the two figures almost-mirroring poses, but the ultimate idea is more about two separate people being entranced by each other in a field of daffodils that seem to blend together to the background when compared to how they look at each other.
This piece is part of the group exhibition Plants and Flowers: Our 4th Annual Green-Life Themed Art Exhibition at Giant Robot Store running from September 18th, 2021 - October 15th, 2021.
In-Person Viewing is now available at Giant Robot Store, Wednesdays - Sundays 12:00 pm - 6:00pm.
