The family name Pook is written in Japanese in a katakana phonetic translation using the characters “pu” and “ku”. Katakana (Jap. 片仮名 or カタカナ) is a syllabary, a set of symbols that represent syllables. Besides hiragana, it is the second Japanese syllabary. Each katakana symbol stands as a syllabogram either for a vowel or a consonant with the following vowel. Since my wife is Japanese and my children are half Japanese I am trying to learn this language.

PULP-ART

Roswitha Paetel

Gestalten mit Papiermache
Haupt Verlag

This book by Roswitha Paetel shares the artist’s 30-year experience with papier-mâché.

The directions and examples are intended to make an important contribution to this topic and to fill a gap by acting as a standard reference work in the field. The design provides an insight into the work of the artist as well as instructions for readers to make their own objects. The conceptual organisation of the book arose from a close collaboration with the artist so that an understanding for the overarching theme and the practical instructions could be given an attractive form.
