PIE BOOKS 1: Fujiwo Ishimoto Works - Textile and Ceramic

Japanese publisher PIE International/PIE BOOKS provides a wide range of graphic design and art books. One of my all-time favourites has been published by PIE. And their current catalogue is full of great looking novelties. Unfortunately they are not too generous with review copies, so I will show you a choice of lovely promotional images (and add those titles to my wishlist). More about PIE and how to order a copy here and here

Fujiwo Ishimoto is a Japanese textile and ceramic designer, living in Finland for more than 40 years. He is best known as a designer for Marimekko (he worked for the Finnish brand since 1974 and made over 300 designs) and Arabia (since 1989). "Fujiwo Ishimoto Works" has been released in December in Japan and in February in Europe.
