My very own unique copy of the Werk no. 17 Eley Kishimoto arrived in the post today, was so excited to flick through the fabrics and see some of the inner workings of this clever duo. If like me you adore prints and vibrant colours this book is feast for your peepers, and does not disappoint! Packed with sketches, inspirational images and even pics from their family photo albums. With only 1000 copies made I would recommend you hurry while they are still in stock!
Love the contrasting childhood pics of Mark Eley and Wakako Kishimoto.
Each edition uses archive Eley Kishimoto materials in a slightly different way, so that no two are exactly the same (how cute!). A bundle of four fabrics on both the front and back of the book act as its cover, with the back four folding over the spine and secured to the front with staples and dress making pins, mimicking, say Work, "a textile work-in progress".
