Issey Miyake / Isamu Noguchi

The beautiful and very scarce “Arizona” publication, produced to accompany a collaborative exhibition between sculptor Isamu Noguchi and fashion designer Issey Miyake at Marugame Genichiro-Inokuma Museum of Contemporary Art, in 1997. This elaborate leporello-fold (accordian) publication is lavishly illustrated with the works of both artists, putting Noguchi’s sculptures in direct conversation with Miyake’s textiles across it’s photographic pages. Accompanying texts from architects, fellow artists and critics addressing their work make up the reverse side of the publication, all in English and Japanese, with biographies. Bound between plastic boards and housed in the original printed plastic slipcase, this unique edition is the perfect celebration of the incredible friendship between Isamu Noguchi and Issey Miyake, whose works fused the ideas and cultures of East and West and continue to inspire generations.

Fine first edition of this rare book.
