The 101st Exhibition Koga Hirano Exhibition The power of letters October 3 - 29 ,1994

Offset printing is the mainstream now not just for book covers but for even the text. These "reproductions" of bindings as lithographs comes from a design to return to origins. For depth, we arranged the lithographs, the books as products and the monitors to be seen at the same time. A binding design must include the title, author's name and publisher's name. I seldom carefully read the actual text but I respect the editor's opinions. I try to show a understanding of the circumstances surrounding the book within the restrictions. For this I use the strength of letters. I also had several from what I consider to be classics which I called "planned bindings." What may appear to be too much reflection may be the difference in the restrictions imposed. The more the restrictions, the more interesting it is and the more a fighting spirit arises.
