Sanae Sugimoto Book - Close Your Ears

$ 64.00

Growing up surrounded by sea and mountains, Sanae Sugimoto was born in Tottori, Japan in 1975. After studying oil painting at college in Kyoto, she now lives and works in Fukuoka. In addition to creating fine art that she exhibits extensively in Japan, Sanae also creates commercial work for packaging, logos and magazines. 

Recently, her interest has turned to using traditional Japanese black and orange inks. This process uses fine pen work to create beautifully detailed pieces. Sanae’s narrative illustrations are mainly inspired by authors and often include imagery of girls, flowers and animals.


This book is a collection of Sanae Sugimoto's works, mostly drawn in 2016-2017. 27 illustrations with Japanese/English titles. This book is designed beautifully by Hideyuki Saito. A hand bookbinding company, Misuzudo delicately bounded each book. Some pieces of paper looks uncut were ripped one by one by their hands. The illustrations were Risograph-printed in Nakano Letterpress Studio.
