A delightful Japanese (with English text too) book about the work of Paul Spooner by Paul Spooner (or Paul Poo as he is sometimes known in Japan).
“The things I produce are made of wood and other useful materials but the essential ingredient is the thought that begins the process and continues to guide me. I make drawings as I go along to remind me of the thoughts. I usually find an idea worth pursuing if it makes me laugh. Other people’s laughter at the finished product tells me whether I’ve chosen the right thought”.
There is a self-introduction from Paul and a catalogue of 48 of his machines which are accompanied by brief texts.
Note: When you buy the book you will also receive a free PDF by e-mail, containing notes and further photos produced by Paul Spooner which amplifies the English text in the book.
