This week, Terasu will make its first foray into tangible goods with Early Hues, a collection of stories and art from a diverse set of collaborators. The book was built thoughtfully, switching between paper stocks several times as the pages progress. The printer that made it is nestled at the base of the Japanese Alps in a setting worthy of days of exploration. The craftsmen who printed and bound the pages take pride in their work, with a mindset and approach that is uncommon in the modern-day print industry. And their setting nestled at the base of the Japanese Alps in a setting worthy of days of exploration.
The materials are carefully matched to the personality of the work printed on them, and each piece was chosen and placed to fit the larger narrative arc. The book is a testament to the creativity and meditative spirit that unites Terasu’s community of creatives.
“In the pages of Early Hues, every piece aims to surpass the sum of its parts, every pursuit extends beyond strict definitions of its discipline. Passions and places are fluid, and no story is confined by borders of any kind. Instead, there is surf sought in the colder corners, terroir tucked between the forest and the sea, and paths to new perspectives over deep snow and mountain roads.
As the first light of the day casts complementary color across everything it touches, Early Hues binds together stories in a way that connects them across pursuit and place.”
