Since the first domestic fine paper NT Rasha was made in 1950, the history of fine paper has been woven by the close cooperation between designers and Takeo, the leading fine paper trading company. The exhibition Paper and Design looks back over those fifty years of history and the products that were designed using Takeo’s fine paper. In this volume, which serves as a record, in addition to spreads pairing photographs of the products and actual samples of the papers used, there are essays by 50 designers whose work was on exhibit.
