The elegant Japanese stab binding of this book—beautiful in its simplicity and functionality—is the perfect starting point for Weiner’s consideration of form versus function. Written in English and Japanese (which work brilliantly against each other in bold block type face) the book reads as a poetic essay, with words and geometric shapes playfully yet purposefully arranged across the pages. The classic question of utility and beauty necessarily turns to one of desire and need.

First Edition. Near Fine. 8vo. Text in Japanese and English, printed in blue, yellow, red, and black, on unopened leaves; internally fine. Blue, yellow, red, and black printed stitch-bound wrappers; stray spot to bottom edge. Housed in a grey slipcase lettered in black.
