A visual translation of Yukio Mishima’s Spring Snow: the sea of fertility.
Beginning with an English edition of the novel, Alison Turnbull translated Mishimas’s descriptive text into a sparse, visual narrative, ordering over 600 references to colours as they appear in the book. As an introduction, Tony White also wrote a fictional account of its publication.
