The Perfect Gift, TokyoPORTRAITS DE VILLES
THE HEART OF CITIES BEATS DIFFERENTLY ACCORDING TO THE GAZE OF THOSE WHO WALK THROUGH IT
Portraits De Villes invites you to hear them beating through the heart of an artist.These rare moments are like postcards you collect.
Portraits De Villes ™ is a collection of books published by be-poles. The guest artist is offered a carte blanche to illustrate the city of his choice. Each Portraits of Towns is a unique journey guided by the singular look of an artist, recognized or emerging, who was chosen for the richness and sensitivity of his vocabulary.
In 2007, the be-poles ™ studio created this collection with a particular artistic demand, both on content and form: from the color of blankets to format, papers, white spaces, typography and finishes, all Details have been designed to best serve the image and its history.
