Ever wonder what it’d be like to be able to witness one of your favorite idol’s personal creativity?
Her imaginative mind’s eye?
And what it’d be like if she were in charge of design, editing and the final cut with her very own hands?
C~ute’s Yajima Maimi’s latest visual “My Museum” is a most original and uniquely themed photo book actually it’s much more an art project which is actually titled as a ‘portfolio’. It measures just 8 1/2” x 6 1/4” and is a hard cover edition with the modest price of just 1800 yen.
And yet what makes this release so uniquely pretty is well…besides of course it is the always gorgeous Maimichan♥ whom we’re speaking of but in addition, “My Museum” in its entirety is styled in the mannerisms of an actual clip art/ scrap book with a most personal feeling. And this personal touch is most true as Maimichan herself decorated and brought her own envisions and designs to each page bringing them to new life in addition to the photographer’s works. The book is then literally a collection of her art work as she personally has given each photo a new depth and artistic touch through a vast number of themes and personal inspirations with her very own hands! As you peruse through each page you really get a true sense of Maimichan’s deep imagination and her creativity like never before as the chance for improvisation for this style of project is literally endless. Just a really fun and very cool approach to giving fans a look inside of an idol’s imagination and for any Maimichan fan, “My Museum” is a most unique photo portfolio opportunity and a definite must have for your personal C~ute collection~! Here I ended up scanning most of the book with just a few images left out.
….I just watched Hansel and Gretel last night, best not to eat the candy!! =P
