Hiroshima August 6, 1945

Hiroshima no more no less

 

 

The artbook to your left is called “Hiroshima” made from washi paper and other materials from japan. (2002 -2005)

 

The stand is inserted with bamboo rods to give the impression of the time the bomb went off, 8:15. The lower photograph is the center spread composing of the Japanese national symbol superimposed with the atomic bomb, named “little boy”.

Pencil rubbing lifted from ruins in Hiroshima are also inserted as spreads. The sheets of washi are folded at the foredge and are secured by a Japanese stitch where the spine is exposed at the back. The book would fan open when the pin to the top was removed. See Hiroshima are thebookmann header
