I am pleased to announce that my new artbook Beyond Time and Space, Cry for LOVE-What Women Feel vol. 1 is out in conjunction with the Vancouver Art Book Fair this weekend! October 17 – 18, 2020.
Find my new book at the booth of Art Byte Critique! Wherever you are, it is available to join the event at online this year. Find and click Art Byte Critique at VABF website. The links should of be updated after the event opening in the evening on Oct. 16 in Vancouver Time (PDT).
This is my first handbound artist book. The front cover is also uniquely handcrafted with encaustic monotype (variation of 10). Text is my translation into English along with original Japanese Waka poems.
This book contains Misako Oba’s 10 encaustic mixed media artworks from the series Truth in Emotion, Beyond Time and Space, inspired by the ancient Japanese poems called Ogura Hakunin Isshu 小倉百人一首 (100 poems by 100 poets), the anthology of ca. 7th-13th century Japanese Waka poems.
Part 1 of the series is titled Cry for LOVE – What Women Feel, a collection of desperate love poems by female poets. I added English translation of each Waka poem and the description along the images of my artwork.
*My books are also available newly launched online store this weekend and some limited period. Don’t miss! During the VANCOUVER ART BOOK FAIR, receive CAD$10 OFF if you place an order for CAD$100 or more!
Discount code: FAIRVANC (Expires at midnight on October 18, 2020 PDT).
(My shop site is open with Canadian dollars this weekend and then US dollars or Japanese yen afterwards.)
Enjoy! There are many events and LIVE chat at the Fair site. I will be at our booth from 4 am in the morning in Japan time :). I am looking forward to attending the opening party with DJ and all (zoom online this year)!
