This double-sided publication features Haruki Murakami's work. The "book" half is a short story by Murakami, called "Town of Cats
." The intimate personality of the story inspired me to make hand-drawn illustrations of cats and use handstitched binding.
The magazine half is done in perfect binding and features a New York Times article on Murakami and his new book 1Q84, titled "The Fierce Imagination of Haruki Murakami
." In 1Q84 and in many of Murakami's stories, the characters and readers get transported to alternate realities, which compelled me to frame images in wormhole shapes, catching glimpses of worlds inside.
