《Steamy Buns饅頭》是Misaki Kawai在2019年來訪台灣時，與nos:books合作的出版計劃。經過一年半的時間，終於完成並呈獻給大家。Misaki的畫作，筆法果斷有力，造型怪趣多變，憑直覺與率性的發揮，卻能繪出如小孩子的純真。讀者彷彿回到小時候握著蠟筆，聞著畫紙跟蠟筆的味道，沉浸在自己創造的世界。
Misaki Kawai於日本大阪長大，肄業於京都藝術大學，創作媒材與式形不拘一格，繪畫、裝置、雕塑、服裝、出版、設計等等互相轉化，無論形象、色彩、內容、形式，全都奔放好玩。歷年展覽無數，包括紐約MoMA、日本與歐美多家美術館及藝廊。近年創作包括IKEA之藝術家聯名地毯、丹麥Flying Tiger的生活設計系列等。
We are jumping for joy to publish Misaki Kawai’s new book “Steamy Buns” - Limited edition of 888 copies and we’ll never reprint - now it’s open for PRE-ORDER. Apart from the SPECIAL PRICE, first 200 customers will be gifted the artist’s LIMITED EMBROIDERY PATCH. Don’t miss it!
“Steamy Buns” was initiated during Misaki’s travel in Taiwan last year in 2019. After one year and a half of work we finally present this beautiful book to you. Misaki paints and creates, with her brushstrokes that seem decisive and effortless, countless characters and reaches a purity that a great artist takes years to become like a child. Such pure joy grows little by little in the reader’s heart, warmly rising like the steam buns – Yes! What Misaki enjoyed most in her Taiwan trip, was the everyday steamy buns she had in the breakfast shop!
Misaki’s colors, full of vigor and vitality. We love it so much that we print “Steamy Buns” with 14-color Risograph, to come close to her radiance. The clothbound hardcover, puffy like a bun, topped with specially printed puffy text, we hope you find the book even more tasty! And the double coil binding, it brings you free navigation, wide-open spread, good look, good touch, and great joy!
