Matsuo Basho, The Narrow Road to the Deep North 2013
A poster made up of a thousand words, yet the only part visible is the name of the poster and the counterforms of each character.
Matsuo Basho is a famous Japanese poet from the 1600s. The Narrow Road to the Deep North is an inspiring journey through the dangerous and the unknown of Japan. A thousand words are not read on a poster, and so being inspired by the Japanese woodblock artists, this poster aims to reflect the beauty of Basho’s writings and his journey through Japan.
