Shūshū: Matchboxes from Kikuko Obachan's Collection” (2022)

「これらのマッチ箱は数年前、私が現在暮らす大叔母の家を掃除しているときに見つけたものです。菓子箱にぴったりと収められていたこのコレクションには特に歴史的価値も市場価値もありませんが、彼女にとっては個人的な理由で特別なものだったようです。私はそのような何にも代えがたい小さなものの価値に惹かれたのです」 

30部限定手製Zine。一冊ごとにページ順が異なる仕様。

This hand made zine contains a collection of matchboxes my great aunt put in a baked sweets box. I found this box several years ago while cleaning out her house, where I live with my family now. This collection has no specific historical nor any market value, but was special to her for some personal reason. I was attracted to such value of these tiny things that can’t be replaced to anything else.

First hand-made zine edition of 30 copies. Each copy has different page orders.
