'Yellow To Red' by Katsumi Komagata
Written by Katsumi Komagata in 1994, this whimsical cut-out paper book tells the story of a newly hatched chick on a journey across the world as it meets other birds and tries to find its missing parents. Komagata uses uniquely textured paper to make this book both a tactile and visual experience, drawing in the reader to slow down and contemplate each page with renewed attention. His evocative and simple story is written on each page in both French and Japanese, with an English translation included in the back.
Founded in 1986 by graphic designer Katsumi Komagata, One Stroke is known for their deceptively simplistic paper-cut out works of art. Although One Stroke started as a graphic design studio, after the birth of Komagata’s daughter, the company pivoted to producing tender and beautiful children’s books. One Stroke’s exquisitely crafted books can be found at the MoMA gift shop and other art centers around the world.
