(note)Book 9222


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…

Wms&Co. is currently the only U.S. stockist of this (note)book.

These carefully chosen and crafted pieces represent a considered mix of the esoteric and the highly pragmatic. Many of these simple things reflect the hand of the artisan or the quiet genius of the inventor. They are useful in ways that are difficult to quantify but, if pressed, we would say they make life a little more efficient and a lot more beautiful.

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.

All books are final sale: non-refundable and non-exchangable. 


We would be great together -
