Absolutely gorgeous! The ingenious use of blank space, separations, and margins evokes the texture and mood of this haunting story. Beautifully done.
Great design – I love your choice of font, and even though I can’t read Japanese, I appeciate you including it – I love looking at different languages and considering the different constraints that working with another language presents, and it challenges our anglocentrism. Also great choice of colors – the pink and green evokes the cherry blossoms.
Nice work! Always interesting to see how two languages which use radically different means of printed communication can be joined and mirrored on a purely visual level. That the designer also provided the translation is even better!
