This is a two-volume collection of drawings of mitosaya by Nigel Peake, an artist from Northern Ireland who finds and draws his lines from nature and cityscapes.

He visited mitosaya in the late autumn of 2018 and 2019. He walked around here and there with his usual navy jacket and a thick sketchbook.

I have since received over 30 drawings from him, which I will be using for mitosaya packaging for the year 2020. To match the finished eau-de-vie, we read the black-and-white lines, think about the colors and placement here, make them into labels and wrapping paper, and send them to him. After a few exchanges, the resulting package sometimes pointed me in the direction of mitosaya.

In this book, co-published by mitosaya and Swiss publisher Nieves, Nigel did all the layout and composition. The book is thin, with only 16 pages each, but the choice of motifs, the lines drawn, and the color combinations are all very typical of Nigel, and it is a fresh surprise to see the world as he sees it.

The book will be wrapped with a colored obi, inspired by a Japanese book.

Here's what Nigel has to say about it

mitosaya is a distillery located in Chiba prefecture, a few hours from Tokyo. It used to be used as a medicinal herb garden. I have visited twice, both times in late autumn, and every time I visit mitosaya it is like stepping into a small new world that has been shaped by Hiroshi and his family. The pictures in these two slim books were created as labels for this year's mitosaya.

Nigel Peake
It's hard to generalize about the work of artist and self-described ""drawer"" Nigel Peake. Raised in Ballytrastan, County Down, Northern Ireland, and currently living in Paris and Ballytrastan, Nigel originally studied architecture in Edinburgh for six years and spent time in Switzerland teaching at an architectural firm in 2013. In the last decade he has published over 50 books, either with Princeton Architectural Press, Yvon Lambert or himself. His work is based on the places he has visited. His clients include Hermès, Flos, Rapha, and Luca Guadagnino. He has had exhibitions in Tokyo, New York, Paris and other cities.
