Hokusai No Yurei by Dennis Yuen
Unwrapping Dennis Yuen’s book is a rare treat. This physically lightweight object morphs into something of unexpectedness weightiness with the unwrapping of each layer of the cotton cord that makes up its bulk.
Using lengths of cotton cord suggestive of Yurei’s (a Japanese folklore character) long hair, the book successfully evokes a sense of the ethereal outside of the specific context of Japanese folklore.
This book is produced in an edition of one and sells for $2000 .
