This is an event-based limited-edition unique photobook created April 20th, 2013, in Tokyo’s Paul Smith SPACE. It’s color photograph for the front cover and 10 gatefold prints, including their sequence, were hand-selected specifically for this copy as was the Paul Smith fabric covering its spine. The cover photo was chosen out of a selection of ten different prints, the gatefold prints were chosen out of a selection of sixty different gatefolds and the fabric for the spine was chosen out of a selection of six different swatches. This copy is number forty out of the one-hundred unique books made over the course of this one day event.
