Turning Japanese

Oh, this is exciting! A while ago, Etsy sent me a message saying that the Japanese magazine MONO was thinking to feature one of the items from my book shop in their pages. MONO, from what I have read, is a magazine that was founded in 1982, and which has been recently making the transition to featuring more "design" products.

I was also informed by Etsy that if the feature ever happened, it would be unlikely that the magazine would get back telling them about it. That has been my experience, too. Publishing people are very busy folk, I figure. So I was pleasantly surprised when Takeshi from MONO actually sent me images from the issue where my handmade book, The Key, is coming out in.

And -- ta-daahh! -- here it is. The cover is a visual feast.
And, somewhere on the inside, is my book.

Can't find it? Here's a detail.
I have no idea what they're saying, just crossing my fingers that it's not something like, "Look how crappy this is!" Whatever it does say, I'd love a real copy, so if you're in Japan and you happen upon a magazine kiosk, see this, and are feeling nice, send me one, please?

t'aurai du me demander la traduction!!!
ce qu'il parle au dessous de tes création :
"c'est un livre visual fait à la main. la clef retro qui est sur la couverture nous séduit.en tout cas c'est un objet tissu très joyeux"
