La nuit, ailleurs --- another laser-cut picture book

" La nuit, ailleurs " = " The night, elsewhere " is my second title in the same series of "Papiers Coupés", fabricated at the laser-cut studio oft the publisher Grandir
This is the another story in the full-moon night.

Removing the silver sheet, the hidden tint --- purple surface of the book --- appears.
The motif on the cover is a bud of "Queen of the night".

The accordion-folded structure seen from the front side.  The Queen of the night bloomed,  mother and child of Malayan tapir, a grape vine, a rabbit in the wood, a snow mountain ...... and those peeping from behind .

Quand petit Tomo dort, a new picture book

"Quand petit Tomo dort"= " While little Tomo sleeps"
Fabricated at the laser-cut studio "Papiers Coupés", one of the section of the publisher Grandir.
A story of the full-moon night, without words.

Book that Loops

cover_open.jpg
This is a prototype of the book (expecting some publisher !) I presented at the solo-exhibition in May, at Gallery EF Monthly Art Shop (Tokyo).
Two lines, orange and blue compose the scene on each spread and, as the lines continue on the front and back covers too, the story never ends making a loop forever.
