is pleased to announce the launch of mumei journal FIVE, a continuous edition of reductive journal ONE, TWO, THREE and FOUR.

Having been encouraged and heartened up by friend’s warm support and understanding, we have decided to move forward with the new name mumei, though the edition numbers continue sequentially.

a brand new mumei journal designed by Glenn Boutler whom we warmly welcome as a new addition to our team. We have also invited N.Y. based visual artist Audra Wolowiec as a guest editor and curator of FIVE. She has been an inspiration and stimulus to our journal development. FIVE has become a strong delight comprised by art works of five wonderful contributors curated by Wolowiec’s tactful and tasteful insight in a field of text art. Having received such positive responses from the first physical edition FOUR, we have decided to print a small run of physical editions available only on mumei’s site.

Again, we would like to show our humble gratitude to those who have supported the journal to pursue the most wonderful collection of art works on the particular theme.

Warm Greetings
