KAYA is small, independent press that publishes some of the best literary work to come out of Japan, Korea, Hawai'i, Samoa, and the U.S. spoon+fork loves books - not just reading, but the actual book itself and how its physicality contributes to the act of reading. Books are the only printed matter that people still cherish and value, and we get that.
So far, spoon+fork has designed four books for KAYA:
+ This is a Bust by Ed Lin
+ Camera Obtrusa by Hara Kazuo
+ Shanghai Dancing by Brian Castro
+ Hyperart: Thomassen by Genpei Asakegawa
spoon+fork also designed the KAYA website and continues to design upcoming titles. In 2008, spoon+fork won the American Graphic Design Award for Excellence for Ed Lin's book, This is a Bust.
