Raw Fish is far more than a compilation of contemporary Japanese graphic design. Next to the graphics, the book presents and portrays the artists in their personal living and working environment, i.e. usually one small room. In Raw Fish, Swiss designer Lopetz explores how Japanese culture and way-of-life mold the very particular aesthetics which uniquely sway between Japanese tradition and Western influence, between playful and at the same time puristic, reduced and perfect.
