Yayoi Kusama
Rizzoli International Publications, Louis Vuitton
New York, Paris

Goto Design co-edited and designed this voluminous monograph in close collaboration with Kusama and her Tokyo studio. In addition to an indepth consideration of the progression and trajectory of her long and prolific career, the book includes ephemera, sketches, and photographs from the artist’s extensive archive that have never been seen before. Multiple dust jackets capture several of the artists recurring personal themes—repetition, infinity nets, and obliteration. This immersive and comprehensive book was timed to coincide with the artist’s solo retrospective at the Whitney Museum in New York in 2012, as well as with her much-anticipated collaboration with Louis Vuitton. Goto Design created a limited edition dust jacket/poster and cover for Louis Vuitton that accompanied their Dots Infinity Collection.
