Drawing A Line, the book, coincided with a Tokyo exhibition of the same name by the Japanese photographer Wataru Yamamoto.
The photos in the series, taken in the lush Kumano forest, are incredibly detailed.
To do them justice I had them printed on a large format, varnished page.
The remaining design decisions offset the cost of the sumptuous format and printing. A stitched spine left exposed reduced the cost of binding. The book jacket then took
a more functional, protective role. Having it folded to increase rigidity also presented the opportunity to make a poster-sized enlargement from the series into an abstracted cover graphic.
