Namiki: The Poignant Beauty of Fragile Things - JF Canton
[BO-CANTONNAM]
A wonderful book by Jean-Fran鏾is Canton, a remarkable testimony of his Asian art love, his passion for the exceptional Namiki pens.

The book contains 300 pages of pure magic, photos of a rare aesthetic, with amazing close ups: the pen is no longer a simple writing instrument but the support of an ancestral tradition and the historical memory of a civilization. The author is an experienced collector, he collects the pieces of a puzzle in which each part is a legend or a habit coming from the Japanese past. He has constantly explored each scene to tell you all the secrets depicted on these exceptional writing instruments and takes you with him on a journey to the complex ways of the lacquer art.

The book is in English and measures 29.6 x 23.4 x 3 cm and weighs 1908 grams. The ISBN is 978-2-9543443-0-0.

About the writer
Born in Vietnam in 1951, Jean-Fran鏾is CANTON has travelled between France and Asia throughout his life. In the 1970s he worked in Asian financial markets. In 1986 he created a Paris-based asset management group specializing in long-term capital investment on behalf of French and International Corporations. Over his time in Japan, he grew increasingly appreciative of the Archipelago's rich and singular culture and of the art of lacquer. His attention was particularly drawn to the timeless beauty of the pens created over one hundred years by the artists of Namiki, a small subsidiary of the Pilot Group. He was fascinated by the virtuosity and sensitivity with which they have been bringing to life scenes inspired by the literary and spiritual heritage of China and Japan.
