on mysterious animals and horrible creatures

Today I am going to write about Mysterious Animals and Horrible Creatures, and illustrate what I write with some of my Inktober drawings.  Anyone who has seen even a few of my comics, cartoons or drawings, knows that one of my major subject headings is weird animals of various sizes, usually interacting with people or humanoid characters.  338 more words

Cré Arts Asia's Gala Night

What I heard of from Cre, and what I witnessed on the Gala night was really two different things… Yes, I had expected gravity defying acts and entertainment from the promise of skilful performers… I had expected some pyrotechnics but the reality was a whole new ‘adventure’ … It certainly was an amazing feast for the senses… 370 more words

BOOK CONSERVATION AND RESTORATION “Supernatural Illusions”

書籍修復の補足4

書籍の保存を世代、世紀の長い単位で考えた時、中性または弱アルカリ性の上質紙で丁寧に作られた、本にジャストフィットする保存箱は、想像以上の威力を発揮する。保存箱の重要性を知ってもらいたい。本の箱には、背が見えるスリップケースと、本全面を覆う箱がある。欧州各国の美術製本コンクールでは、運搬時の本の保護のため、出展作品に保存箱の制作が義務付けられていることが多い。スリップケースと箱には美的側面もあり、審査対象となるコンクールもある。その場合は、芸術作品と呼べる、デザイン性に富んだ独創的な美しい箱作品が並ぶ。そういう「コレクターの世界の常識」を知らない人は、どうせ捨てる箱にお金をかけるのはばかばかしい、と言う。製本を知らない人だとすぐに分かるが、黙っている。過去に一度だけ「スリップケースも保護にはなるが、書棚に置くと背だけ日焼けして外見を損う、だから貴重本には外箱も必要だ」と言った訪問者がいた。とても頭の良い人だと思った。
