Asaba’s Diary (Diary)
Seigow Matsuoka wrote an essay on Katsumi Asaba for “The Age of Individuality”, the third exhibition of works from the DNP Archives of Graphic Design that was held in 2002. “…I have no idea how far back it goes, but Katsumi Asaba has kept a journal for a long, long time. I suspect that, except on the most extraordinary of occasions, he has written in it every single day. With the timidity that behooves a protege I have been urging him to publish this material, but he, of course, told me in no uncertain terms to leave well alone…” Thank you, Seigow Matsuoka. I have finally chosen to go public.
