This book showcases the prolific work of my favorite Japanese contemporary artist, Yayoi Kusama. It explains her upbringing and how it inspired her dot motifs. It follows her life’s public work and showcases her most recent ideas, passions, and projects.
The book sleeve is designed with a double meaning. When inserted, the book cover fills a circle die-cut and exposes an elaborate painting. Once taken out, a red hollow dot is revealed which also becomes the Japanese flag. Other features include a newsprint section and a booklet insert.
Role: Design/Art Direction
