DEAR（Book & Publication）
The result of exploring possible next-generation novel formats, DEAR is based on the idea of printing individual copies with different content according to the persons that purchase them.
Back in 1997, Seiko Ito originally released a novel, titled Kuroyagisantara (Black Goats), as an e-mail newsletter. He then got together with Gabin Ito, ucnv, and Taeko Isu to work out ways of breathing new life into the publication using contemporary means. They decided to make a printed book and asked BCCKS for assistance. We are very happy that this work won the RGB Prize even though it is actually a printed publication. Books, information technology, and Internet culture influence each other reciprocally. We believe that this is one title (in 4,000 variations) that will go down in the history of print media.
