In this presentation, Yo Yamazaki will introduce us to the fine art of bookbinding. He will begin by sharing some of the influences on his work, including his childhood experience of reading the tales of Narnia. It was then that he realized that books could become a kind of magical portal into fantastic worlds. This fascination led him to create his own books, become a master bookbinder and teacher. He will share many examples of his beautiful books, which integrate both Japanese and Western influences. You will come away from this presentation with a fresh appreciation for the value and beauty of books as an art form in their own right. 

Please support JASM to continue with our mission and activities.

Yo Yamazaki (山崎 曜)is a master bookmaker, whose work can be found in collections throughout Japan as well as in many international exhibitions. In 1995, he founded the Handmade Books Center (手で作る本の教室) in Tokyo, where he began teaching the joy of making books by hand. Not only does he teach people how to create their own unique books, but he also teaches how to appreciate the presence of a book itself, as well as the beauty of a wide variety of book structures. Yo teaches regularly at several universities in Japan, including Tokyo University of Fine Arts, as well as leading a variety of workshops overseas. You can learn more about Yo and see examples of his work on his website: http://yoyamazaki.jp/
