A collaboration between the writer Yoko Tawada, the photographer Stephan Köhler and the book designer Clemens-Tobias Lange. 
 
This artists’ book is a tautological work. A poem for a book turns the book into a poem through carefully intertwining words, images, the printing process on the translucent and crispy paper.
 
 
Photo emulsion and letterpress on handmade Japanese paper. Bound in natural colour ray-skin (Galuschat) by Thomas Zwang. Edition: 45 + XV e.a.
