"Omizuao is an accordion-bound "pillow book" — A collection of landscapes, flowers and female nudes. The artist has used the accordion-bound format to create an installation which measures some 14 feet when fully opened, but which can also be viewed as 45 individual spreads ... hand bound in two clear-lacquered hardwood covers, and presented in a matching wooden box." — Publisher's blurb.
