“Autumn in Japan” is an ink painter’s diary of a journey through Japan in the autumn season. A collection of memories seen through the artist’s brush, coupled with a tribute in words to the Japanese tradition of the travel diary. Four metres of daily paintings in ink by Mafalda Tenente are reproduced over nine foldout triptychs, and interspersed with the journey’s narrative. This hand-bound edition includes elements associated with autumn, such as filtered light (komorebi), changing colors (kōyō) or fallen leaves (rakuyō) through its concise creative design. A particular typeface was selected to match a new translation of a classic Japanese poem, building a bridge between the earliest travel diaries and the present book. “Autumn in Japan” is a book for all the travellers out there in search of a contemporary connection to the journeys that preceded them, as well as those who admire the art and literature of Japan.
