Trifold drum leaf books. Hand binded and printed with the vandercook letter press machine. Limited Edition. 4x 5 in.

This book is my personal experiences that I have had and felt in San Francisco. The experience are about being an outsider, what I believe normal is not normal, and that  I am a different person after you get a different identity, not a Japanese nor an American. Since I am still working on how to be a foreigner with totally different background, I wanted to express the in-concluded ambiguity with the mixed, over-lapped brown color as being neutral. To use only two colors and overlapped two languages were the main idea to express the duality.
