I blog about this book not only because I am captured there, but because it shows a completely different way of approaching arts, in this case it’s photography and essays.
Not talking about the design of the book, which is stunning.
Whoever and wherever WANG Zhi-Hong and HSU Yu-Wen (the graphic designers) are, I want to congratulate you for your work in creating this masterpiece. I wish I knew you, but I am sure you’ll read my sincere greetings and thanks here.
Again, it is amazing to see Joi’s creativity in action.
I know him for years, and I’m a great admirer of the good things he does for the Internet, and for the world. Sometimes I think that the planet needs just a few more people like him, and all problems will be easier to solve.
