Masanao Hirayama, a Tokyo-based painter and performer, creates works filled with black lines. He carefully draws them over and over again until the lines becomes an unconscious act. This book is one of his pieces, a work of art, perfect bound with a soft cover and pages of uncoated soft white paper. Is it transgressive to say we envision using it as the ultimate chunky notebook? It promises to inspire deep thinking, meditations, sonnets, streams of consciousness…

We are lifelong bibliophiles. Shelves filled with books line our studio walls and more are stacked on every surface. We admire their design, scrutinize their typography, fetishize their paper and analyze their binding. We read them for research, for inspiration, for the sheer pleasure of exploring new worlds of thought and experience.
We have curated a selection of books to offer our audience, based on our interests and yours. Most of our books are limited editions or out of print, they are seldom available in the US, and not available on Amazon.
The fact that we have now launched our own imprint seems an inevitable extension. Wms&Co. books are created in collaboration with the interesting characters, visionaries and designers we encounter. Subject matter varies wildly but is always infused with the spirit of creativity and a respect for good design.
