Publisher Note

"One Moment, One Drawing” is a mini art edition in A6 hardcover format. The edition contains reproductions of twelve drawings created in Switzerland by Mafalda Tenente using Japanese ink painting (sumi-e) technique. These reproductions are preceded by a brief introduction to some of the ink painting principles, and each book is hand-bound using the traditional Japanese stab binding method. The selection of drawings follows twelve of the twenty-four ancient Japanese seasons of the year, or sekki. Each drawing is a detachable postcard, where you can write your own reflections on the verse. This edition can be enjoyed as a whole, or transformed into new moments of connection to be shared with others.
