Nobody Knows: Yoshimoto Nara drawings
Upon looking at presentation of sketchbooks by both Frida Kahlo and Sara Midda, I found myself drawn to the sketches within Nobody Knows: Yoshimoto Nara drawings. It was enjoyable to see that the paper stock used in the book was textured and quite thin, like sugar paper. Thus making the book feel as though it were a sketchbook because the illustrations, although printed, gave off the illusion that they were drawn directly into the book itself. It was also captivating to see the many uses of different paper stock, from lined paper to graph paper as well as the texture of the pencils that were used for the illustrations. Showing the many different examples of illustrating on different surfaces shows how different results occur as a result of this type of experimentation which I found successful in the form of this book.
