This Weeks book features an illustration by Juzo Itami, a genius who exhibited a broad variety of talents across a range of fields such as being a commercial designer, actor, essayist, television presenter, magazine editor-in-chief and film director.
The name mon oncle is French for “my uncle.” This is the name of a magazine Itami was the editor-in-chief for, and the phrase meant a lot to him.
The illustrations on the mon oncle Weeks cover include a bird-shaped lemon press, a phonograph, and a collection of boots—all precious belongings of Itami. They all appeared as illustrations in his 1965 essay “Diary of Boredom in Europe.”
The number ‘23 foil-pressed on the cover and book spine were both written by Itami for the sake of a complete collection of books by his father, Mansaku Itami. This sharp and beautiful font, named Itami Mincho, serves as a nice accent for the techo.
The design’s limitation of color gives it an elegant and chic look that makes it well-suited for both work and personal use.
This Weeks book will fill your year with curiosity and fun, much like the way Itami had deep insight as a hobbyist across various areas such as being a music aficionado, cat lover, vehicle enthusiast and culinary connoisseur.
