Back Cover #6 – Japan Special — Paris, France

Autumn/Winter 2014 – The sixth issue of BACK COVER is the result of a four-month period spent in Japan. It is devoted entirely to this geographical and cultural area.

Little of what is created in Japan reaches us. Our knowledge is limited to commercially viable (and hence translated) imports and to a number of marginal and more unusual aspects, occasionally introduced by enthusiasts keen to share their interest. We believe that this extraordinarily rich and multi-faceted subject deserves our attention. The linguistic difficulties and complexity of the signs belonging to Japanese culture further contribute to its interest. By traveling to Japan, we were able to get closer to the country and reach a better understanding of it.
