Who's Afraid of the Tasmanian Wolf? - Kenzaburo Oe
Who's Afraid of the Tasmanian Wolf? - Kenzaburo Oe Who's Afraid of the Tasmanian Wolf?, an essay adapted from Nobel Laureate Kenzaburo Oe's lecture on the future of Japanese culture, is an original translation from scholar Kunioki Yanagishita. The book was printed letterpress from Bembo types–cast by Michael Bixler and adjusted by the printer's hand–on dampened Somerset Book paper by C. Mikal Oness at Sutton Hoo Press and features calligraphy from artist Kazuko Akiba on its recto pages. The quarter-leather morocco case binding and elegant black cloth-clad drop-spine box were designed at the press and executed by Campbell-Logan Bindery. The covers are printed with excerpts of the text in the author's own distinctive calligraphic hand.
