そのブックデザインは、装幀の美を競うのではなく、本そのものの新しいあり方を探究し、提案している。《private print postcard シリーズ》 は偏愛する写真を机辺から選び、オリジナルの葉書フォーマットに自身の手で印刷し、章句を添えて親しい人に贈るもの。各7部限定。すべての写真は、自著の本文テクストに対して「ねじれの位置」にある「脚注」として扱われている。これは平出隆の写真展シリーズ《FOOTNOTE PHOTOS 展》の第5回目でもある。

crystal parcel

This refers to a method where a literary work is written and designed by the author, then personally wrapped in a transparent material and sent to the reader. It is simply mailed as printed matter through the regular post, but the contents of this package were created by hand. The creative endeavour of writing, book design, package design, arrangement of address stickers and postage stamps (even sticking them on the package by hand) is all done by the writer himself, making for a singular package. The limited copies are then delivered to the readers.

TH_AIRPOST POETRY Director’s Foreword

The Japan Foundation, Toronto is proud to present TAKASHI HIRAIDE—-AIRPOST POETRY Book Design for One from One. Takashi Hiraide is an official invitee of the 2016 International Festival of Authors at Harbourfront Centre (October 20-30).
One of the foremost poets of the Japanese post-WWII generation, Hiraide has written many important works including For the Fighting Spirit of the Walnut, which received the 1982 Emerging Talent Award in the Ministry of Culture Awards for the Promotion of Arts. Kenzaburo Oe commended his works as “an experiment that gives birth to a new kind of prose from within poetry,” and truly, Hiraide’s activities go beyond the realm of poetry and extend into the fields of novels, travel writing and essays. His first novel, The Guest Cat, was a 2014 New York Times bestseller, and has been translated into more than 10 languages.
Hiraide also has a long and distinguished career in book design and binding. Seihaku Irako, a book authored and designed by Hiraide, won awards in Japan and was shortlisted for The World’s Most Beautiful Book Award at the Leipzig Book Fair.
This exhibit offers an overview of Hiraide’s activities, including early works from the 1970s-1980s; books written by other authors but designed by Hiraide; books written by Hiraide but designed by another famous book designer, Nobuyoshi Kikuchi; translated editions of The Guest Cat; and four series of works tied to the theme of post-mail:

«via wwalnuts»                  Books crafted by Hiraide and mailed directly to readers. Launched in 2010, 23 issues have been published to date.
«only-box»                         Boxes printed with poetry and decorated with stamps, designed for storing the via wwalnuts series.
«private print postcard»   Limited edition photo postcard and poetry series.
«crystal parcel»                 Literary works written and designed by the author, then personally wrapped in a transparent material and sent to the reader.

The «only-box» and «private print postcard» items on display were created in Japan and mailed to Toronto especially for this exhibit. New works will continue to arrive and be added to the collection during the exhibition period. The Japanese stamps, postmarks and even damage incurred during shipping are all part of the artwork.
Hiraide’s book design is not only about appearance; it suggests new ways for books to exist. Please enjoy Hiraide’s experimentation with books that transcend existing genres and systems.

private print postcard

This is a series where the author’s favourite photographs are taken out of the drawer and printed by the author onto an original postcard format and then mailed to his acquaintances. Each photograph is limited to 7 prints. In all of them, the year the photograph was taken is indicated and the relationship to one of his literary works is suggested. The photograph is somehow connected to the content or the background of the literary work and as such, functions as a footnote to the text. This is an extension of the «FOOTNOTE PHOTOS» exhibits that have already been held three times in Tokyo.

only-box

《vww-box》is a special box created for 《via wwalnuts》by the writer. With each box, he selects, arranges and attaches the stamps in a unique pattern, to which he may add shipping forms and seals, creating a postal objet d’art. It is then deposited into a mailbox and the postmarks, smudges and damage from the process of being mailed engrave a unique relationship with reader, further defining the bookmaking design. It can be addressed to the exhibition hall or directly to the reader.

«via wwalnuts» 専用の函 «vww-box» に、著者自身がさまざまな切手を図案構成的に貼付し、さらに票符や印章などを施して、郵便アートのオブジェとしても制作したもの。投函され、送達される過程での消印や汚れや傷みも、読者との唯一の関係の刻印として、造本デザインにふくまれる。展示会場宛の場合と、直接読者宛の場合とがある。
