The Book of TERADA MOKEI, a book I have been wanting to write since the establishment of Terada Mokei, is finished. The "Architectural Model Accessories Sets" which originally triggered the establishment of Terada Mokei were originally created to make life easier for myself at the office. In other words, it allowed me to be lazy and wasn't a product that was leading me into the future, yet I released it as a support product for architects and architectural students. Now that the average consumer is interested, I have been allowed to shape the product into an item for sale at museum and design shops.
This book is a warm reflection upon the background of the birth of the Accessory Sets, as well as the philosophy and theory of their design therein. The book also contains photos submitted by customers, limited edition sets not available in stores, and other related information. And last, but not least, this book is the first ever attempt to use the "Accessory Sets" in picture book and flipbook comic styles. You're sure to enjoy every page.
Finally, the book also includes limited design Accessory Sets (of a business card size) to pinup posters (folded in eighths within).
The price will be 1800 yen plus tax. You can buy a copy for just 300 yen more than an Accessories Set.
A real bargain. Naoki Terada
