A Place Where the Stars Rest


by Katsumi Komagata


A Place Where Stars Rest is a beautiful picture book made with the texture and shape of paper.

Internationally praised Japanese artist and designer Katsumi Komagata tells a tender and simple story on the nature of stars. Each page is complete with text in English, French, and Japanese.  The book was originally produced as a gift from the city of Grenoble in celebration of all the babies born that year.

This whimsical cut-out paper book gently describes the night sky and the community of stars that live and rest there. 

Katsumi Komagata is an award-winning artist and graphic designer. He regularly holds exhibitions, talks, and workshops for children in many countries, particularly Japan and France. He is the founder of One Stroke, a graphic design studio that later expanded into children's book publishing after the birth of his daughter. He lives in Tokyo.
