Our Spot: Tokyo

Sasa [44], Our Spot: Tokyo (Seoul: Specter Press, 2010). Offset printing, saddle-stitching with cover, page size 257 x 364 mm, 72 pp. Featured photos by Sasa [44] and Kim Sang-tae.

Sasa [44]’s ongoing project Our Spot 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 Park MeeNa as closely as possible.” The typographic treatment of the headings is reminiscent of the title of Sans Soleil, a 1983 film by Chris Marker. The text is set in Union, a typeface designed by Radim Peško to unify Helvetica and its most ubiquitous imitation, Arial.
