New Publication: Where did Issey come from?
- The Work of Issey Miyake

From TASCHEN’s ultimate monograph Issey Miyake (first published in February 2016, concept and editorial direction by Midori Kitamura), this new book recompiles 8 chapters of Kazuko Koike’s essays and an extended, newly-written final chapter.

 

In this book, essays by Koike, who has known Miyake since school days and has observed Miyake’s activities since then, wittily describes Miyake’s outstanding achievements and creations in the context of the time background. Throughout the chapters are around 30 artworks by Tadanori Yokoo, originally used for Issey Miyake’s invitations for Paris Collection during the years from 1977 to 1999. The book is bilingual with vertical Japanese typesetting using letterpress printing and sophisticated atmosphere in horizontal English typesetting; virtuosic skills of the graphic designer, Katsumi Asaba further adorn the book with perfection.
