Our spot: Tokyo

Sasa [44], Our spot: Tokyo, Seoul: Specter Press, 2010. Offset lithography, saddle-stitched with cover, page size 257 x 364 mm, 72 pp. Pages shown here contain photographs by Sasa [44] and Sang-tae Kim.

This publication is a part of Sasa [44]’s ongoing project Our spot, which involves traveling to different cities following other people’s instructions: “Sasa [44] from Seoul traveled to Tokyo in February 2009 to spend a few days following instructions given by his friend MeeNa Park as closely as possible.”

The title and the chapter headings are set in Annlie, reminiscent of the title of Sans soleil, a 1983 film by Chris Marker. The text is set in Union, a typeface designed by Radim Pesko to unify Helvetica and its most ubiquitous imitation, Arial. See also Sasa [44]’s Our spot: New York.
